Lorrie Moore's 'Bark' finds grandeur in the day-to-day
Lorrie Moore's "People Like That Are the Only People Here" may be the most ruthless short story I've ever read. Published in the New Yorker in 1997 and the next year in Moore's collection "Birds of America," it revolves around a family turned upside down after a mother finds a blot clot in her baby's diaper.
