"Buttony" by Fiona McFarlane Originally published in the March 7, 2016 issue of The New Yorker. Click here to read the story in its entirety on The New Yorker webpage.
I think some people will be thrilled to see McFarlane show up again. When her first New Yorker story, “Art Appreciation,” was published in 2013, many readers here thought it was great (see here). I kept saying I’d read it, but I don’t think I ever did . . . So I still don’t know much about McFarlane’s work. I’m excited to see what people think about this story!
