Discussion Notes: Flashlight
This week’s story: Flashlight by Susan Choi
Next week’s story: Rough Deeds by Annie Proulx
Gerald, Andy and Anais discuss “Flashlight” by Susan Choi, a richly layered story of a girl haunted by the early death of her father, resentful of her mother’s illness, and longing for an adult to identify and provide what she needs. The simple short story provides plenty of fat to chew on, and all three hosts dig in to the plot, characterization, motifs, and clues.
