When Marisa Silver’s short story collection Babe in Paradise appeared in print in 2001, it received enthusiastic reviews, many of which singled out “What I Saw from Where I Stood” as one of its best stories. The story chronicles one week in the lives of young couple, Charles and Dulcie, who a year earlier had miscarried after six months of pregnancy. Charles, the “I” of the title, tells their story from his perspective, from “where [he] stood,” as he struggles to help his wife deal with the baby’s death and to gain enough strength to face the future. Through his narrative that subtly details his observations and responses to his wife’s pain, Silver presents a poignant study of the healing influence of compassion and support, and the resilience of the human spirit.
