"Dido's Lament" by Tessa Hadley Originally published in the August 8 & 15, 2016 issue of The New Yorker.
I am always so happy to see Tessa Hadley’s work in The New Yorker, and at this particular time, when so many recent stories have really disappointed me, she’s particularly welcome. I can’t wait to see what she’s got for us this time.
I’ll be sharing my thoughts below soon. Please let us know what you think of “Dido’s Lament” or Hadley’s work in general.
