Purim & My Bangladeshi Friend: A Short Story



Seth Barrett Tillman, Purim & My Bangladeshi Friend, Gadfly: Culture that Matters, [Hereand [Here].


Sunday is Purim. 



I wrote and published this 8-page short storyPurim & My Bangladeshi Frienda little while back. My story is once again, timely, and sadly, once again, all too relevant to life in our shared West, in our shared modernity.

My short story was reviewed (or linked to) on several blogs:

T. Greer, Notes From All Over (3/02/2014): Ghosts, Empire, and Tribal Honor, The Scholar’s Stage (Feb. 3, 2014) (favourable review, but the reviewer gives away a key plot point);






After reading my short story, you might consider—or reconsider—the meaning of the sad events in Cologne (and across Europe) in a new way. You might also consider or reconsider the meaning of the authorities’ immediate, disgraceful response, or to be more accurate, non-response.
