A.L. Kennedy, "How To Find Your Way in Woods"

Two ex-lovers reunite for no good reason.

(from Indelible Acts)

I liked how she doesn’t know why she invited him to her place in the woods, and how he doesn’t know why he accepted it. I didn’t like the stilted back-and-forth mindgames the two played with each other, but once they started treating each other a little more civilly, the plot started feeling more lucid. This story brought to mind a very specific memory of a particularly excellent place. So, for personal reasons, I ended up liking this one.
