On Great Novels with Bad Endings : The New Yorker

Apropos of the previous post, Bookmaker at  http://bookswithfiction.wordpress.com/   directed me to this post for which I thank him very much and which just about sums it all up:  On Great Novels with Bad Endings : The New Yorker.

We expect an ending to match the story we just read. To tie the loose ends in, but also to give us that little extra something – and don’t ask me what, because I am still struggling with that in my short story.

I will get there. When I do, I will stick it on here and you can see if I got it right.
