Conversion on the Road to Malha
In this week’s Illustrated PEN, guest editor Robert Kirby features a piece by Eric Orner.
Roberty Kirby writes: “Eric Orner’s ‘Conversion on the Road to Malha’ is from a series of autobiographical stories set in Israel, where Orner was employed for a yearlong stint as an animator. Orner is a master at delineating cultural divides and human foibles, and in this piece in particular he’s as sharply observant and drolly humorous as ever. ”
“Conversion on the Road to Malha” was first published on 3200Stories.com.
The Illustrated PEN is a weekly online series that aspires to be at the intersection of literature, journalism, and visual storytelling, where images and words come together in an ever-emerging and essential creative form. We’ll feature fiction and nonfiction graphic narratives, comics journalism and illustrated reportage, stories of social justice and personal stories that can’t be told through words alone.
