I am more than slightly obsessed with the new FREE app Paragraph Shorts. Each week, “Paragraph features stories from master storytellers such as John Cheever, Donald Barthelme and Mavis Gallant, alongside fresh voices like Etgar Keret, Taylor Mali and April Ayers Lawson. Every issue of Paragraph features music from an up and coming band to create a moveable feast for the eye, ear and mind. The core of Paragraph is a community of people like you. People who like to stop every once in a while, experience an amazing story, and continue with their life, partially changed for the better.” The stories come from reputable lit publications such as The Paris Review, The New Yorker, The Moth and The Guardian, as well some lesser known literary magazines, and the first few issues feature stories from Jonathan Franzen, Wells Tower, Ray Bradbury and Jennifer Egan.
