Below, you can read an excerpt from our study guide:


The short story by Peter Bradshaw is titled “Reunion”, which initially suggests that some characters are going to meet again after some time. The title is intriguing because it does not reveal anything about what this reunion is about or whether it is planned or accidental. Reading the short story, we discover that the title is a hint to the plot twist. The story leads us to believe that the main character, Elliot, meets his childhood love, Lucy, at a conference: “Was it...? Could it actually be...? There was nothing else for it. I was going to have to talk to her.” (l. 33)
