Ann Beattie's short story "Starlight", published in the September 19th, 2011 issue of The New Yorker imaginatively uses the last official picture of the Nixon's as the basis for a story from Pat Nixon's perspective.
I want to hear from other readers who enjoyed this story, because I found it difficult to get into. What worked for you? What did you love? What parts stand out for you?
I love the idea behind this story and am trying to discover why I was not receptive to the content.
