I decided that morning to wear a very low-cut top, because I was interested in being conspicuously performative. Performing a character in the text, not myself. The selection I read was about Lena losing her virginity, and coming to terms with the implications many years later.
Noted: the interplay of gender and triangulation.
Two women reading. Men watching. We each read twice.
Both selections told of uneasy straight relationships, closing.
Katie's three ended in two. Ladies.
