Bullet in the Brain

Bullet in the Brain is a short story written by Tobias Wolff and originally published in New Yorker magazine in the September 25, 1995 issue. At just under 2,000 words, it is really an amazing piece. But rather than blab on about it, I wanted to post links to the story for you, Dear Reader, to experience it yourself. Following are links to read, listen to, and watch the author read this great story.
