I'm terribly pleased to have a new story, Navigation, on Granta.com. You can read it here, if you're so inclined.
This one came to me really quickly - the thing was written in two days - and I'm happy with it, which is a weird feeling for me. I don't know what I tapped into but it came together really easily. I hope you like it too.
Oh, and the thing with the goats is real. Happened to a fella my grandmother knew, so I'm very happy to admit to borrowing that one.
