Discussion Notes: A Rich Man
Find this week’s story here: A Rich Man by Edward P. Jones
Next week’s story: The Five-Forty-Eight by John Cheever
Gerald, Rammy, and Anais discuss “A Rich Man” by Edward P. Jones. Anais valiantly tries to convince Gerald and Rammy that there’s more to the story than meets the eye. Though the men on the podcast agree with Anais’s points, they struggle to connect with the overall narrative and characters. However, Gerald enjoyed the prose and reads his favorite lines.
This story pairs nicely with next week’s story, “The Five-Forty-Eight” by John Cheever. Both stories focus on philandering men whose dalliances lead them down dangerous paths.
