Short Story Discussion, “A Silver Dish”, with Evonne Kruger
This is a 1978 short story first published in The New Yorker. The story observes sixty-year-old Chicago businessman Woody Selbst as he comes to terms with the death of his father, a con-man and petty thief. “A Silver Dish” was collected in a volume of Bellow’s stories entitled Him with His Foot in His Mouth, published in 1984. Copies of the short story are available in the Meyers Library.
