To the point of breaking, the rope was stretched.

Guardian Unlimited Books | Special Reports | To the point of breaking, the rope was stretched.: "To the point of breaking, the rope was stretched. At the end of which hung a twitching, whey-faced Arthur, and his pig, Marmite."

From the winner of Dave Eggers' short story contest: To the Point

400 word short short story.

I don't care for animal violence. Even if the pig was not slaughtered I'm not sure if I can handle this story. It is robust though and worth taking a glance over.

  • I don't care for animal violence either, but I am impressed with short shorts that work, and this does. Fast, immediate imagery, hint of a haunting ending. What's not to like in 400 words?
