I am a huge fan of David Mitchell’s writing. That’s David Mitchell the author not the guy out of Peep Show, though I am a big fan of that too. My recommendation for today is his short story, ‘The Massive Rat,’ which I read earlier this year and shows that David Mitchell is capable of brilliance in the short form as well as the novel. Here’s hoping he publishes a collection at some point.

Read ‘The Massive Rat’ here.
