Short Stories Thru the Decades
"Williamsburg Bridge" (2015) by John Edgar Wideman
Wideman is one of the nation's literary treasures, and his contribution is a dazzling, delirious achievement: as his narrator, perched on the edge of the Williamsburg Bridge, prepares for suicide, he delivers a cri de Coeur that ranges from Sonny Rollins to the Yalu River and becomes nothing less than a meditation on the extraordinary resilience of ordinary black lives in the American Century.
