Short Story #238: The Jilting of Granny Weatherall by Katherine Anne Porter
Title: The Jilting of Granny Weatherall
Author: Katherine Anne Porter
ReflectionIt's a sad tale about dying, intergenerational stress, and trying to understand what one's time on Earth means. Of course, the mother being eighty years old and named "Weatherall" is a hard symbol to miss. However, there is a toughness about her character that's not to be understated, even in her passing and how she fights it.
