‘The Necklace’ is about a young wife who was born for all of the best things in life, but has married a low-paid clerk in a government ministry. Even when they’re invited to a fantastic party for the rich and famous, she’s unhappy because she’ll have nothing special to wear. Her husband buys her a dress (that he can’t really afford) and she borrows a diamond necklace. But that is exactly when her problems start (2,280 words).
