关于父亲的英文短篇小说

Short stories about father
在我们的生活中,父亲的角色或许不像母亲那样充满炙热的爱,却有着独特的坚韧与温情。父亲节之际,我想和大家分享一些我最近阅读的关于父亲(最后两篇关于祖父)的短篇小说和回忆录。

Fighting The Tree
By Davon Loeb
“Give Dad a pencil, a piece of paper, and a ruler, and he could design a house. Give me a pencil, a piece of paper, and a ruler, and I could draw our family.”

The Color of Grief
By Kendra Judge
“The mirror winks as the bulb flashes off, then on, blinking in silvered surprise. In it, I see the curve of my face, an echo of my father’s. The link between us.”




Shoe Shopper
By Kendra Judge
“I want my kids to wear shoes like my landowner’s kids’,” he replied, gazing outside, “not rubber slippers like mine, so they can aspire to be like them, so they can lead respectable and comfortable lives like them.”

Sticks
By George Saunders
“Every year Thanksgiving night we flocked out behind Dad as he dragged the Santa suit to the road and draped it over a kind of crucifix he’d built out of metal pole in the yard.”

Small World
By Purnima Bala
“He’s said the same thing every year on this day, the anniversary of my mother’s death. And my answer has always been the same.”




Teal
By John Brantingham
“Your grandfather said, ‘Poof,’ as though this had been God’s terrible magic trick, one that dissolved a bird into nothingness, and that one word terrified you.”

Business Card
By George Matsuo
“I wondered how many times he sat on that card for it to become so withered. All the years he held on to my novelty.”
