Sample text

She was already immersed in her e-mail. Rebecca was always checking her e-mail, it seemed to Glassman, as if she were awaiting that one crucial message sure to arrive at any moment. She was constantly being invited over the wires to academic conferences where, on her own dime, she read the papers she assiduously wrote, between grading stacks and stacks of freshman papers, on Louisa May Alcott, Rebecca Harding Davis, Sarah Orne Jewett, or some other nineteenth century woman writer (all of whom seemed to have three names).

He had failed her miserably in the past, had put her through the ringer with an unyielding bout of melancholy. He wished he could loop back in time and snap his former self to, not so much to alleviate his own suffering but to spare Rebecca. He couldn’t change the past, of course. Yet he could renounce all future episodes. Yes, he could do this, he thought from his current vantage. It was the least he could do for his wife, far too young to be so long suffering.

His chair had arm rests and the steel desk (which usually annoyed Glassman since he couldn’t cross his legs under it) formed a welcome barrier between them. Glassman tried to resist feeling guilty for not having returned Shuman’s call. It had only been a few days, after all. “I received your message. Sorry I haven’t gotten back to you yet, by the way. It’s been really hectic here,” he lied. Shuman dismissed the issue with a tilt of his head and a scrunch of his shoulders. He didn’t care, Glassman deduced, that his phone calls went unanswered.
