Me, Andy, and a hot dog at Al’s Hot Dog Stand in Danbury, CT
I’m not really a fan of the current trend in “ending” literary short stories — where nothing is really resolved but you are left with a particularly visual or poignant moment — but I thoroughly enjoyed “Temporary” by Marisa Silver nonetheless. (I suspect it may have been excerpted from a larger work, but even then I would like more of a sense of closure.) Her writing style is simple and accessible, but still touches on deep emotions and real-life issues.

me: glee was an accident
me: like an “oops baby”
