This summer's "must read"

I just picked up the Tin House Summer Reading edition and it is FANTASTIC. The first story is "Memory" by Stephen King and it is the most heartwrenching, fabulously layered story I've read in months. I cried for a good ten minutes after I finished it, beamed with pride at the talent of my favorite author in the world, and have been thinking about it at least in part for the last eight hours.

You should be reading Tin House anyway but in case you don't, still do yourself the favor of picking up this issue. There's a ton of other good stories/poems/interviews in there that I haven't gotten to yet because the King story wiped me out, but I'll get to them soon.
