Short story: Arthur Krystal, What’s the Deal, Hummingbird?

The short story by Arthur Krystal, What’s the Deal, Hummingbird?, in The New Yorker, is a huge advance over the 1920s stream of consciousness modernist innovations, for the 2022 audience of people like me. it is perfectly done. Short. Resonant. Just the right ending. It might seem self-indulgent. But that’s what a self is, after all.
