This short story from the collection Wild Child was originally published in the Kenyon Review.
A divorcée disturbed by her upcoming thirty-fifth birthday decides to

whose secretary looks like a walking advertisement for the whole industry. When
he spurns her advances, she’s thrown further into a crisis of self-image,
wanting only to see herself in a new light, as something better.
