The month ahead appears to offer far more cinematic highlights than the typical August, though you'll have to venture beyond your local cineplex to catch most of them. True, the surprisingly good horror sequel Annabelle: Creation and Steven Soderbergh's return to filmmaking with Logan Lucky will screen in wide release. But it is this month's indies that really shine, including features like the Black Mirror -esque Marjorie Prime , festival hits like Good Time, Beach Rats and Patti Cake$ , and the year's highest-scoring film to date.

Knopf, 2016). Her writing has also appeared in  Best American Travel Writing 2009, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Virginia Quarterly Review, Newsweek, Outside, Slate, Garden & Gun , and  The San Francisco Chronicle , among other publications, and she has appeared as a featured guest on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and All Things Considered. In 2009 she received a first-place Lowell Thomas Award in travel journalism and a residency grant from the MacDowell Colony. She lives in North Carolina.

The character confesses that she had to parent alone, a nineteen-year-old single parent, and sarcastically quotes a note her husband left for her “…he could no longer endure.” Tillie Olsen leaves us, the reader with the sense that the character in the story now feels more of a failure. Because of the thinking of her time, she should be married. It is unfortunate that her husband failed his family, expecting that 'she could endure' where he could not. The story continues with the mother finding a job, using day care, and resenting that she is not doing her “Mother Role” for her child. Tillie Olsen points this out by writing “…she was eight months old I had

I can also see Tillie's real life experience fitting in with the story because, on page 67, she talks about not knowing her daughter. She goes on throughout the story to explain that they don't really have a healthy strong relationship like most mothers and daughters. It was very obvious that Tillie and her mother didn't have a "normal" relationship because they spent so much time apart. Emily tried to connect with her mother on many occasions. She would ask to stay home from school. Emily would also tell her mom not to leave for work. By Tillie Olsen adding these situations in the story, I can only think that she had wished she had more time with her parents. She obviously felt it was something that she missed out on during her childhood, so she wrote about it.
