‘I’d Love You To Want Me’ by Viet Thanh Nguyen

This is a moving story. We meet a character who struggles with their memories ‘gradually stealing away’. Mr and Mrs. Khahn know a lot about each other, but there are huge gaps between them too.  

First published – as ‘The Other Woman’ – in Gulf Coast 20.1, Winter/Spring 2008, and collected in The Refugees, Little Brown, 2017
