Bug Love Redux: Spider at the Window


The People of LWON and their splendid guests have several ongoing preoccupations, and rather than have you try to mentally collate them over the years, we thought we’d devote a week to each preoccupation.  That way they’ll all be in one place. This week is devoted to redux posts on loving bugs.


A few years ago, a funnel spider made a home in Nell Greenfieldboyce’s window. In this beautiful essay from 2014, Nell becomes absorbed with the task of trying to love her. But this human-spider unrequited love story (like so many interspecies love stories involving spiders) ends in heartache.
