    One thought on “A Regular Couple

    1. Julie Ehlers on said:

      This was fun I hope Curtis Sittenfeld releases a collection of her short stories someday, because I always like them but I m sure I ve missed a bunch.

    2. Ember DeBoer on said:

      I love Sittenfeld s writing style which I was first introduced to in the novel Prep she writes the way my high school girlfriends and I chat with each other This short story was very relatable in regard to the struggle to transcend or break free of who we were or at least who we were pegged to be in high school Much like the struggle not to be perceived and treated as our early, unfinished selves during family gatherings, I think many of us also hope to come across as someone confident, cool, a [...]

    3. Stephanie Sun on said:

      Diverting, slightly dark Like Sittenfeld, Maggie, the main character in A Regular Couple, unexpectedly became famous in 2005 This story explores some interesting ideas about how power dynamics in relationships both casual platonic and marital can shift so easily, based on so little and the uneasiness that this can cause those lucky enough to come out on top Not a bad read, but some aspects of its dialogue, execution, and conception were half baked.

      Despite being a short story, this is probably my second favourite of Sittenfield s works, my favourite being American Wife The premise and internal dialogue is excellent Who hasn t thought about what they d do if they re met the popular people they hated from high school, as adults Maybe my low self esteem is showing here.

    5. Swati Daftuar on said:

      Really enjoyed this, but the end sort of flattened the story for me In a way, it was just right, but I think I was expecting dramatic reveals or confessions or something none of those would have suited the story particularly well, and Sittenfeld s version is the fitting one, but it is also so tame that I felt cheated.

    6. Tracy on said:

      Short story about a plain Jane lawyer who marries an unambitious man who is happy to spend her money They run into another couple on their honeymoon and she is confronted with the discomfort of their difference in status and wonders about the state of her marriage.

    7. Joseph on said:

      Great short story that says worlds about marriage Just like Tolstoy s Anna Karenina it offers wisdom without casting dispersions I likey.

    8. Gigi on said:

      Another home run from Sittenfeld I wish she d publish short stories between novels

    9. Patti on said:

      Curtis Sittenfeld never disappoints I just wish this were a novel and not a short story I want

    10. Morgan Schulman on said:

      Wow I hated high school with every once of my being, but it s always anti climactic to see the tables turned An interesting but depressing story, if you are up for moral ambiguity.

    11. John Nullmeyer on said:

      I love this author and stumbled across this short from the Atlantic Definitely recommend

    12. Alison on said:

      This short story isn t necessarily something to seek out, but it was interesting and well done I m impressed how well I felt I knew understood the main character in such a short story.

    13. Catrien Deys on said:

      Nice quick read, would have liked it to last a bit longer, but it didn t linger.

    14. Veronica on said:

      Even though a short story once again, Curtis Sittenfeld delivers and leaves you wanting .
