The February 25, 2013 issue of The New Yorker has a new short story by Paul Theroux  (Malawi 1963-65) entitled, “The Furies” that is about a man who leaves his wife for a younger woman, and the revenge his ex-wife visits upon him. You can read more (but not the whole story) here. theroux

It is a terrific piece of fiction, and we haven’t seen much short fiction lately from Theroux.

His next book is on traveling in Africa, The Last Train to Zona Verde, and is due out in May.
