Want to download some free reading for the weekend? Consider "Business Deal," a fairly brief short story by Nathanael West (1903-40) set in a bygone era of screenwriting and movie-making, which the Library of America has made available from Nathanael West: Novels and Other Writings.
Or check out any of the other offerings in the Library of America's Story of the Week site/archive.
(For more background on the West story, check Carolyn Kellogg's Jacket Copy post, through which I discovered this find and the accompanying archive.)
Have a great weekend, everyone. See you back here on Monday.
