I started my day reading, something I haven’t done for weeks, it felt fantastic! I read a nice little piece by Laurie Stone called Once you change the setting of an object, what does it become? I liked it a lot! I liked the essayistic style and Stone’s strong and personal voice. The story is like a clip from everyday life, but do – as the everyday surely does – also contain existential questions. In the text there is a reference to Lydia Davis, baked into the whole in a sweet and funny kind of way.
I found the text in a new book called: Winter Tales II. Women on the Art of Aging.
Any of you read any Laurie Stone?
