I like the sentence structures in this piece.

It appears I’ve read one other story by this author, “Man-O-War,” which I never would have guessed. Watkins is a versatile writer.

I’m disappointed to see that Granta is now using author photos to illustrate some stories online. Even when the author inserts herself into the story, I somehow don’t trust an author photo. I’d rather see something like this or this.
