All through lunch they grilled Doug about his work. He told them the story of his mother buying him
a correspondence course in drawing when he was five, told them that making art was all he had ever
wanted to do. "I understand that," said Dad, nodding softly. "I made my first book when I was six."
"And isn't it nice that Ruthie has a master's in art history now," said Mom brightly, "it goes so well
with art." I realized she thought of graduate school as just another way to meet men.

We separated after lunch: Dad and Doug went home to fix the table. Mom and I went shopping for
dinner. When we came back with the groceries Dad was standing at the door like an eager
seven-year-old who can't wait to show off a school project.
"Miriam," he said, "come see what we've done! We had such fun fixing the table!" He leaned on it to
demonstrate its sturdiness. I had a brief moment of wishing it would give way
(1)
beneath him, but it

didn't. "And now Doug's going to show me his portfolio."
My father's German accent was stronger than I remembered; the sound of his voice was getting on
my nerves. I felt myself grit my teeth as I went into the kitchen, but even from there I could hear him
asking questions. Then, suddenly, he raised his voice. "Miriam," he called, "come in here. You must see
this!"

"Don't cook the corn more than two minutes," Mom said as she walked out. I put the water on to boil,
feeling like Cinderella. I was still muttering angrily to myself when Doug appeared, offering to help.
"Your father's going to show your mother my work," he said, pulling the husk from an ear of corn
(2)
in
one smooth motion. "He probably does it better than me."
"Mmmm," I said noncommittally.

"You're so lucky," Doug said.
I looked at him, surprised. Doug had never complained about his parents' lack of interest in his art.
He was so self-sufficient it had not occurred to me that his family made him lonely. As I went to put my
arms around him my bad mood evaporated.
Ruth Reichl,
Tender at the Bone, 1999.
(1) give way: s'effondrer (sous un poids)
(2) the husk from an ear of corn: l'enveloppe d'un épi de maïs
