Reader's Diary #1682- Anna Paquier: A Potted Cactus


Anna Paquier's "A Potted Cactus" is labeled on the Short Edition website as humorous, and indeed it's that. There's a quirky sensibility that is helped by the quick pace of the tale.

It is, however, still about a young man who has been hit by a truck and near death. There are themes about the afterlife and it could provoke readers to consider what they would do with their own lives if given a second chance.

Plus, it's set at Christmas, so an all around good read!
