‘Let it Cry’ by David Court

I’m not usually a fan of the macabre, being somewhat of a wimp, but this short story by David Court pulled me in entirely. Nestled within his short story collection Scenes of Mild Peril, this is a plague story, set in Dublin, with elements of folk tale eeriness and compounded by a breath-taking finale. Given the current climate of a global pandemic, it resonates even further with the reader.
