Short Story Thursdays

Short Story Thursdays presents Turgenev

“I will tell you why I don’t want to die: I will tell you… Now we are alone; and only, please don’t you … not to any one … Listen…” – From this week’s selection.

The District Doctor by Ivan S. Turgenev

Short Story Thursdays is a weekly, email based short story club. One email a week. One story a week. All classics. No garbage. Simply email shutyourlazymouthandread@gmail.com to join. Every Thursday a classic short story will appear in your inbox, both in .doc format and .pdf for your smartphone or tablet, along with an introduction to the selection written by Jacob Tomsky. And that’s that. All he asks is that you read the stories (or at least the intro emails, if you want to flatter him and him alone). This project is designed to inject literature into your life on a weekly basis in a way that’s never been done before.
