My Magical Summer by Alan Dwight

Recommended Posts

This engaging story reminds me of the opening chapter of Faulkner’s “The Sound and the Fury,” at least in its approach. I dare not say more without spoiling things. 

It’s much more than a coming-of-age story.  I liked it.

Finally found it, but not under Alan's list, but under Newest Short Stories.

I enjoyed the story, and could really see a lot of my own Aspie youthfulness in it.

The very last paragraph grated a bit on me, as it's extremely unlikely that he moved forward to find other lovers in the next few years. Maybe one, eventually, after just as much effort as this first one.

It's interesting how the written word is subject to interpretation. I took 'other loves' to be deep engagement with other concerns; they could be hobbies or romantic crushes or relationships... all possible in the mentioned time span.

Thank you for sharing your story Alan. I enjoyed it.
