Pop Quiz

"Pop Quiz" is my effort to find a new structure in which to reveal the details of an affair, while telling a story that is actually about the marriage. It is also a reaction to the familiar "consequences story" formula in which the unfaithful wife begs for reconciliation and the husband (and, vicariously, the readers) weigh the arguments and render judgment as to what the husband should do. Rarely does the wife examine her motives and question what she should do.
