Bewildering Stories welcomes...
Audrey has an MFA degree from Chicago State University, and her passion is storytelling. She’s had respectable success in publishing her literary works.
The characters in “Papa Jah’s Banjo” have been fixtures of American literature and culture since Harriet Beecher Stowe. Readers might begin the story expecting more of the same. But Audrey shows that is where the story begins, not where it ends. The old, artificial divisions drop away before the primordial power of music and, by extension, of all art. Papa Jah seems to suggest that his banjo is a gift from Heaven. Judging by its effects, it surely is.
