Book Review: the relationship by Ashley D. Stevens

Author: Ashley D. Stevens
Title: the relationship
Publication Info: Services LLC, 2019

This is a novella, or perhaps even a short story, written by someone I follow on Twitter.  It tells the story of a relationship between a librarian and a dancer in Philadelphia in three non-chronological parts: their eighth date, the day the dancer asks out the librarian for the first time, and 3 years into the relationship when big decisions are made.  It’s very sweet and highlights a lot of small details in a relationship. In its minimal prose it reveals a lot about the characters and the changes in their relationship over time.
