story: A Bowl of the Real Thing

author: Eugenia Chao

year: 2006

where: home, pacing in the living room

note: This story comes from the Painted Bride Quarterly vault (published the year I entered college–long before I was on the PBQ Editorial Board).

a line: “The house we approached, which belonged to Wan Jen’s father, looked like it had been split in half and the other half had run away.”
