Review: Starlight – Ann Beattie

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.
