TWO MEN ARRIVE IN A VILLAGE

Zadie Smith has written a new short story for The New Yorker’s annual summer fiction issue. The piece is entitled Two Men Arrive in a Village. Here’s an excerpt:

“Two men arrive in a village by foot, and always a village, never a town. If two men arrive in a town they will obviously arrive with more men, and far more in the way of supplies—that’s simple common sense. But when two men arrive in a village their only tools may be their own dark or light hands, depending, though most often they will have in these hands a blade of some kind, a spear, a long sword, a dagger, a flick-knife, a machete, or just a couple of rusty old razors. Sometimes a gun. It has depended, and continues to depend.”
