Referential – Lorrie Moore
A double-header – two stories for the price of one! You choose which order you want to read them in!
Referential by Lorrie Moore was published in the Telegraph in 2014 and came from the collection ‘Bark: Stories’.
“Written as something of a homage to Vladimir Nabokov’s ‘Signs & Symbols’, or rather a sequel to the events in that tale, Referential cleverly references the original in both style and content. I came to the original after reading Moore’s interpretation – it might be worth reading Nabokov’s story first:”
