14. “Tattoos” by Jack Dann
Strange, dark fantasy about Jewish folk and tattoos and transformation and transference and spousal love through bad times.
This also pleasantly surprised me, having expected it to be at first like a Paul Jennings story, the sort of thing I’ve always been squeamish about. Plus rather amused by a character early on recounting a prophetic dream which no one seems to have noticed as such. (also, the only holocaust survivor in the story is not Jewish, though the story itself is centred on Jewishness)
