Rachel Lyon’s Self-Portrait with Boy

Photographer Lu Rile is probably the most interesting fictional character I’ve met in quite some time, and I read more than the average bear.   The best work Lu has ever done inadvertently captures the death of a young boy, her neighbors’ son.   Will she, can she, use this piece to achieve artistic success in spite of the pain it will cause, and, if so, how far can she take it?   I’m still thinking about this character, and I still don’t know how I feel about her.  Read it.  Love it.  Like I did.
