story: “Taking Care”
author: Joy Williams
where: NYUAD Library
note: POV is so interesting in this story; I like how Williams keeps us locked onto the character Jonas, but then flies over to his daughter in Mexico or into the future.
a line: “She is going to Mexico, where soon, in the mountains, she will have a nervous breakdown. Jones does not know this, but his daughter has seen it in the stars and is going out to meet it.’”
theme(s): Afterlife, Anagogy, Family
