A Vintage Shorts “Short Story Month” Selection
The colonel had served in two wars with the Marines, without being injured. Then, at home, he breaks both legs falling off a horse, and learns that his knees will never fully recover. Together with his wife, he will have to relearn everything, all over again.

“The Colonel’s Wife” is the moving story of a man and his wife, the woman for whom, when he met her for the first time, he felt “that he was looking at the sun without burning his eyes.” A story of peace after war and the continued drama of real life. From Andre Dubus’s masterful and compassionate collection Dancing After Hours, a New York Times Notable Book.
