Kseniya Melnik "The Witch" plus interview ~ Granta

Appearing in Granta, Kseniya Melnik's story "The Witch" follows Alina, whose migraines have become so terrible the family has run out of options.

On various levels and through different characters, questions about sickness in relation to the body arise, creating a wonderfully original, vivid, and moving piece.

Kseniya also answers questions about writing in English and Russian (her first language) at the end of the story. Her insight to writing, submitting to journals, and teaching all make this a must-read.

Check it out!
