The Grownup: A Story by the Author of Gone Girl

The Grownup: A Story by the Author of Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn "To me, it's a nice day's work when you make a lot of people smile. I know that sounds too earnest, but it's true. I mean, I would rather be a librarian, but I worry about the job security. Books may be temporary. Dicks are forever."

Maybe it's just the day I'm having, but this made me laugh. This short story had the usual Gillian Flynn acerbic female protagonist, but with a slight twist on the unreliable narrator tricks. It was a fun ride.
