story: “The Wedding ”
author: Joy Williams
where: home, home on the range, where the deer and the antelope play
note: The ending reminds me of the Chagall painting “Over the Town”…also his “Wedding” but not as much!
a line: “The people in Elizabeth’s fables were always looking for truth or happiness and they were always being given mirrors or lumps of coals. Elizabeth’s stories were inhabited by wolves and cart horses and solipsists.’”
theme(s): Love, Marriage, Storytelling
