A Pair of Silk Stockings

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I had not heard of Kate Chopin before I started reading this. A Pair of Silk Stockings contains five short stories and overall it was a really nice read. That’s what I have been reading these little books for, finding new-to-me authors.

In the title story, a woman has 15 dollars to spend on nice things for herself – a rarity – and as she has a wonderful day choosing the beautiful stockings and gloves and visiting the theater, at a certain point realization hits that it can’t last and that when the curtains draw she will have to return to her normal life. I think that is a very relatable kind of thing.
