It always gives me great pleasure to introduce a debut writer. So, ahem! Readers, pay attention: Here comes Cheston Knapp. One Story is lucky to be publishing his first short story, and I know that there will be many more to come. And you, happy subscribers, will be able to tell your friends that you read him first. “A Minor Momentousness in the History of Love”starts in the real world–a famous tennis match that occured on July 2, 2001 between Pete Sampras and Roger Federer at Wimbledon. Cheston Knapp has taken this event, meticulously recreated it and at the same time, added his own sub-plot. A love triangle between two ball boys and a ball girl, working the game. We’re introduced to William Able, and follow him point by excruciating point as he plays an entirely different kind of match against the girl he loves. These two stories, fiction and non-fiction, cross into a tightly woven tapestry of tragedy and loss, triumph and defeat. Take a look at the trailer Cheston Knapp created for issue #133, below, and be sure to read his Q&A with us on how he wrote the story (which includes references to Heidegger as well as a very cool self-portrait). If you like tennis, you will enjoy reading this story, and even if you know nothing about the sport (like me), you will still love it. In “A Minor Momentousness in the History of Love,” Cheston Knapp has made a fantastic debut, and served his readers an ace.
