On "Toggling the Switch" by Alicia Gifford (3080 words) ***

So many stories depend on a horrible incident. So many others depend on some sort of infidelity. Gifford does a grand job here of merging the two. I love how the incident comes out of nowhere. We think we're getting one story and end up with another. And then the first story comes back, in what now seems rather unimportant. Nothing like something else to put things in perspective. Read the story here at Narrative Magazine (log-in required--but it's free!).
