Hilary Moon Murphy writes capital-S-Stories. She is a re-imaginer of fables and tales from all over the world, and this one, of a man who pulls a fast one on Brahma, is filled with lush details, mesmerizing rhythm, and sly humor. And, apparently, I caught a misspelling in the story that no one else had, so that makes me feel good about myself. Also, I need an Omar.
