You Don’t Have to Read This

I’ve just gotten another “Notable” nod at the back of Best American Nonrequired Reading. This is the third time I’ve had a title “noted” there. I think it means of the many stories you’re not required to read this year, with mine you don’t even have to read the title.

The title (skip this if you want, it’s not required) is “Chemistry.” It appeared in Zyzzyva in 2012.
