Delmore Schwartz. "In Dreams Begin Responsibility", which imagines the narrator seeing a movie of his parents' courtship and of his desire to stop it and the reel before they went on to make each other so miserable.
Peter Taylor's, "The Forest" which I will look at in more depth on Friday.
Russell Banks, "Sarah Cole: A Type of Love Story" which turns the princess and the frog tale upside down.
I am still working out how these fit together, but they did. I think it has something to do with the chasm between the sexes in what they expect to get from a relationship.
What great short story have you read recently?
