The Wonder Spot

in ‘Speaking With the Angel’ (Ed. Nick Hornby)


Very girly, a woman’s daydream about an ideal night – with a younger guy who’s in love with her who’s more successful than her ex-boyfriend – who they bump into at a party. The present boyfriend is reassuringly protective of her, and she can even feel sorry for the supermodel on the arm of her ex.


Perhaps a nice reverie for someone who’s not me.
