The Blue Blood

(2015)
A Novella by

 
 
This story was originally published in Day One, a weekly literary journal dedicated to short fiction and poetry from emerging writers.

The woman was looking for a blue-eyed blond.

It started innocently enough: she wanted a baby. She and her boyfriend had taken appropriate action, but no matter how hard they tried, it just wasn't happening. So, with her boyfriend's consent, the woman begins to look for a donor who can produce a child that resembles her partner, in the hope that physical similarity will make up for biological paternity. But the hunt for the perfect sperm - and the woman's growing obsession born from disappointment - casts a shadow over their lives too big to endure. From Icelandic author Oddny Eir comes a story of raw desire, the bleakness of hope, and what happens when the most intimate thing is the farthest from reach.
