Emily Franklin, "43 Lake View South"

A woman in an apartment building describes certain events in her life.

This short piece was interesting to me in that this woman seemed to know more about her neighbors than she did herself. The unexamined life is not worth living, it has been said. She tells us of her job, her dog, her porn-watching neighbor and, ultimately, we feel her loneliness. A sharp piece of descriptive fiction. 8/10.

Read it here.
