I was taking an English 102 class at http://goforward.harpercollege.edu/ and we had to parse out some short stories. Some really good stuff, typical liberal fare but the quality of stories was great. I read Sonny’s Blues there and it still has the best imagery I have read. The scotch and milk on the piano, the relationship between the brothers, amazing story, well worth your time.
