‘Extra’ by Yiyun Li

Granny Lin, the protagonist of ‘Extra’, is a character that will always stay with me. I wouldn’t change a thing about ‘Extra’ – I recommend it to anyone who asks me about short stories.

First published in The New Yorker, December 2003, and available to subscribers to read here; collected in A Thousand Years of Good Prayers, Random House, 2006
