My short story “Ulysses, King of Hearts” is up at Storgy today. Click Here to read it.
Much thanks to the super editorial crew at Storgy for their kind acceptance of the piece.
It’s always kind of dreadful to have to summarize a piece or describe “where the idea” came from but I’ll say this much: The story is an “inverse” re-imagining of Charles Bukowski’s The Most Beautiful Woman in Town with some references to both James Joyce’s Ulysses and savage beatings by nuns.
Confession: I have never finished Ulysses – I have made it about 1/3 of the way in a couple of times.
Read and enjoy – and keep an eye out for those pesky nuns – I’ll be back.
