A WRITER'S WIT
There was that law of life, so cruel and so just, that one must grow or else pay more for remaining the same.
Born January 31, 1923
An Emerald Indeed
“'I’m searching for something that isn’t quite there,' she once said" (63).
Billy has endured electroconvulsive therapy, which the author describes in such vividly seductive detail that you sense he may have experienced it himself. Billy endures one more test, one that even in his potted sensibilities, he manages to surpass himself—and most of us—as a human being. This story, you must read. Antrim’s story collection The Emerald Light in the Air, in which this story appears last, comes out in September.
