March 2nd, 2011 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Think of two people, living together day after day, year after year, in this small space, standing elbow to elbow cooking at the same small stove … nearly every morning, that George, having reached the bottom of the stairs, has this sensation of suddenly finding himself on an abrupt, brutally broken off, jagged edge … It is here that he stops short and knows, with a sick newness, almost as though it were for the first time: Jim is dead. Is dead.
