Keep a Light On
On "Keep a Light On" by Bonnie Brewer-Kraus
by Laura Maylene Walter
So much about “Keep the Light On” struck me during my first reading: the eerie premise, the relationship between the narrator and her husband, the snappy pacing and transitions, the subtle humor, and how the story subverts expectations about what became of Brett. Bonnie created a palpable atmosphere in very few words, and the image of Lola standing on the street in the dark, gazing up at the mysterious light in her absent son’s room, stayed with me long past my first reading.
