The New Yorker: "The Arbus Factor" by Lore Segal

The photograph accompanying this story (which is not online, it seems) conveys more, I thought, than the story itself (it's of an woman with a deeply lined face and may even have been taken by Diane Arbus). Jack and Hope meet for lunch; it’s clear they know each other extremely well and gradually the circumstances reveal themselves, but for me to reveal them now would be to spoil what little pleasure there is in the story. The end.
