Two drugged-out couples contemplate life and morality in “Leviathan,” a classic short story by the masterful Tobias Wolff.

For Helen’s thirtieth birthday party, her husband decides to throw her a small party. Armed with booze and three grams of cocaine, the four partyers—Helen, her husband, and another couple—spend the night and the next morning in a drug-induced stupor. As their talk turns to past misdeeds and shameful acts, the couples begin to wonder if it’s not the bad decisions in life bring happiness and meaning.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In Leviathan…a kind of reverse moralism is at work here; perhaps, Wolff insinuates, it’s the straight-and-narrow path that leads us into a personal hell.”
