Discussion Notes: Flashlight

This week’s story: Flashlight by Susan Choi 

Next week’s story: Rough Deeds by Annie Proulx 

Rated: Clean

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.
