Discussion Notes: Year’s End
Next week’s story is Prepositions by Lionel Shriver
Happy Holidays! This week we discuss Year’s End, a story about a young Indian-American college student who must once again process the death of his mother after an announcement that his father has re-married several years after his mother’s death. This story sparked some great discussion on pain, clichés and culture in literature. Enjoy!
Don’t forget to rate the story! For the history of our goofy system, see Anais’ post “Read Short Stories or Ray Bradbury Cries.” On a scale of 1-6 Bradberries, how do you rate Year’s End? Tell us in the comments below or via voicemail, and we will give the final tally on the next episode.
