REVIEW: “A Feather’s Weight” by Andrea Goyan

Review of Andrea Goyan, “A Feather’s Weight,” Luna Station Quarterly 48 (2021): Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.

Josie is a care worker who has been tending Mrs. Cooke for the last two years; when Mrs. Cooke dies, she leaves Josie a single feather, and the weight of many memories.

I really loved the friendship and connection between Josie and Mrs. Cooke in this story, how real and fully-fledged both characters felt, and how intimate the story was without any of the usual trappings of intimacy.
