Story Title: ‘Open Mike Night’ by Robert Perry.
Collection/Anthology?: Bristol Short Story Prize Anthology 4 (Bristol Review of Books)
Briefly: It’s open mike night and Mike gets the opportunity to openly declare his love for the beautiful Amander.
Afterthoughts: Weighing in at a lowly two pages this is undoubtedly the shortest story in the anthology, but as short as it is, it’s playfully entertaining. Norfolk-born Perry clearly has a vibrant sense of humour and a unique zing to his prose, which makes Open Mike Night original and enjoyably frolicsome.
