"The Persistence of Memory" is a short story by Gael Baudino concerning Barbara, a pregnant housewife, who begins seeing things she had not noticed before when she starts doing special memory exercises developed by her husband, Frank, and the effects it has on her personal and family life.

In 1989 this story was adapted into a graphic novel for the book The Bank Street Book of Fantasy.

The title is taken from the painting by Salvador Dalí.
