Pie Dance, Molly Giles, YOU’VE GOTTA READ THIS.
by Patti Abbott
This is a collection of stories by well-known authors recommending more forgotten writers to a new audience. Amy Tan recommended this one although I have a collection of Molly Giles stories and it is probably in that too.
The first line is such a grabber. “I don’t know what to do about my husband’s new wife.” I am going to write a story using that line because I expected this to go in another direction and a story instantly flew into my head.
Anyway, the new wife keeps showing up at the old wife’s house. The old wife doesn’t seem too bothered by it except that the new wife won’t come inside the house or have a cup of coffee. In the end, we find out why. Patti
