SF/LD author, Mary Miller, on today’s Tin House Flash Friday
He sets our plates on the table and sits across from me. I eat alone so much I feel like we should pray. Have you ever loved someone as much as they’ve loved you? I ask, a precedent for this line of questioning already established.

‘Triburbia,’ by Karl Taro Greenfeld - NYTimes.com
Greenfeld is attuned to the fleeting details of cultural fashion: of speech, dress and mores that are the weft of character. His TriBeCa husbands and wives and their children play out their biological and vocational destinies within a precise historical moment. Smug and insular as they are, intimations of the financial crisis start to reach them, like thunder rumbling across the river from New Jersey; empty storefronts appear, and, horror of horrors, their lofts start losing value. It’s a mark of Greenfeld’s talent and the complexity he brings to their portraits that we almost feel sorry for them.
