Remember in school when students were taught that there were three viewpoints of writing: first-person, second-person, and third-person? The two voices which dominated much of required reading material was in first- or third-person, so what happened to second-person? It is often avoided, but there are those who would like the presentation.
Enter Mandi M. Lynch of Ink Monkey Press, who decided to revive the second-person voice in her new anthology ‘You Don’t Say!’. A collection of stories written entirely in the second-person, it has the potential to drive some English and Literary teachers a bit crazy. However, that is the draw. Ms. Lynch wanted something unusual, and has found a delightful selection of stories that met her criteria.
You Don’t Say is an anthology of stories written in second person, where “you” is the main character and “you” is the narrator. Writing in second person allows a reader to step into a story and feel as though they’re right there in the action.
