After reading through all the short stories in The Best American Short Stories (2002) by Sue Miller, the one that stuck out to me the most was “Nobody’s Business” by Jhumpa Lahiri, taken from The New Yorker. It is the story of twenty-something year-old friends, Sang, Paul and Heather, who live together to cut rent costs. Sang constantly has men calling her who want to meet up, and ultimately marry her. Sang starts dating Farouk, and all is well until things get sticky between Farouk and Sang’s housemates. Read this enthralling story to find out what happens in “Nobody’s Business,” and check out the whole The Best American Short Stories series!
