Madeleine Thien’s “Alchemy”

“I pictured how dark and naked our bodies must be, how small the two of us were. Right then I wanted to tell Paula that there are some things you have to go through on your own. Some relationships withstand life, some are there for a moment, a stepping stone, and then you push away from them.” – Madeleine Thien, “Alchemy”
