Alice McDermott’s “Enough,” via Selected Shorts
This story is really worth your time to read/listen. Just enjoy.
From the Selected Shorts website:
“Alice McDermott’s luscious “Enough,” is all about embracing the pleasures of life. Tinti comments: “I love this story. Especially coming from a Catholic background, the idea McDermott begins with—about a “good soaking” of dishes and also the soul—to make them clean and Godly, is something I’m very familiar with. But McDermott turns this concept in a new direction, telling us that to live a good life, a full life, you also need to soak in life’s pleasures—love, sex—and especially (in this tale) ice cream! Giving “Enough” its full due is Fionnula Flanagan.”
