story: Where Do You Go?
author: Samar Farah Fitzgerald
where: in bed, surrounded by luggage needed to be packed
note: the lake, the lush sleepy town, feels pushed up against Margaret Atwood’s Bluebeard’s Egg, utterly enjoyable (both stories)
a line: “And at some point, Vega’s unlikely reaction to Henry’s attention–the very fact that she didn’t anticipate falling for anyone like him–became more exciting, more arousing to her than the adventures she could have with a man who was uncaring, unkind.”
