Readings From Three-Minute Fiction Contest
We are in the home stretch of round six of our Three-Minute Fiction contest. Judge Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche is reviewing the best of the entries. And while she does, we're bringing you weekly excerpts of some of our favorite stories so far. This week's passages are from two stories. First, "The Tiger Lady," by Jimmy Boyer of St. Simons Island, Ga., and "El Lloron," by Yovani Flores of Phoenix. The excerpts are read by NPR's Weekend Edition host Liane Hansen, and NPR's Felix Contreras.
