About the Story

“I Stand Here Ironing,” was a classic almost from the moment it appeared in “Best American Short Stories of 1957.” In the story, written in startlingly poetic prose, established domestic experiences as compelling subjects for fiction. We don’t just inhabit the mind of the narrator, a woman reflecting, in the midst of housework, on her daughter’s childhood and her own experience as a mother. Her story distills big issues into seemingly simple domestic tales.
