Understanding in the ‘FootNote’

excerpt from ‘Footnote‘ by Carmit Delman

” It was lonely. It was purely intimate. No one could know what a momentous thing she had realized recently. In clinging to her new understanding, she left the office at 5 p.m. sharp, spent more time alone. She had to wrap her arms around herself tightly, closing everything else out.”

Words from ‘Mixed‘, an anthology of short fiction on the multiracial experience created by Chandra Prasad.
