It would be very easy to introduce the following email interview with writer Erin McGraw with a reference to that Royal Teens song, “Short Shorts” (“Who wears short shorts / We wear short shorts”). Especially given that the short stories in her new collection Joy And 52 Other Very Short Stories (hardcover, Kindle) are all only three or four pages long. But I won’t do that. I have too much respect for you and for her. So don’t ask.
