A Vintage Shorts “Short Story Month” Selection
In this witty and moving work of short fiction, “you” recall the romantic interests you had once pined for, crushed on from afar, kissed, and never forgot. Exploring the forces of attraction as well as the tender reaches of the heart, Joan Wickersham chronicles these brief episodes from a young woman’s history, from Boy 1 in the block corner of a kindergarten classroom to Boy 23. Originally published by One Story and chosen for The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2015, this selection is a generous meditation on the varieties and endurance of love.
