One Night on the Island is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of One Night on the Island
You genuinely want to send me to a remote island to marry myself?’A warm flush creeps up my neck as I sit across the desk from Ali, my terrifyingly enigmatic boss at Women Today. She’s asked me to do some fairly out-there things over the years but this one tops the lot.‘It’s not legally binding,’ she says, as if that makes it better‘Look.’ I pinch the bridge of my nose, choosing my words carefully. ‘It’s one thing for an A-lister to declare she’s “self-coupling” for an interview in Vogue, Ali. It’s altogether different for an almost-thirty-year-old dating columnist to claim she’s doing it too.’
I stumble as I say my age; the number sticks like glue in my mouth. Thirty felt like just another year until I was twenty-nine and three-quarters, but now that my landmark birthday is a few weeks away, I’ve started to experience all kinds of unexpected and unwelcome anxieties. I was – I am – determined not to make a big drama out of it, but with every passing day it’s as if someone adds an extra weight on to my shoulders – one of those mini cast-iron ones you get with old-fashioned kitchen scales. I’m disappearing under tiny, invisible kitchen weights and Ali has noticed my diminishment because Ali notices everything.
