“The Wretched and the Beautiful,” by E. Lily Yu
Appeared in Terraform, February 6th, 2017
An elegant story. While I have no doubt about the author’s politics, the story itself makes its point with delicacy, almost ambiguity.
A nice touch: “For this special edition of Terraform, the writer, award-winning E. Lily Yu, artist, Jason Arias, and me, the editor, will be donating our fees to the International Rescue Committee, a group founded at the behest of Albert Einstein, which assists refugees around the world.”
