Example text

Irina with her great fur hat, a Cossack, an old spinster, mouth turned down – her poor husband. I’ll be away. I need you to make this decision today or tomorrow. Tears on the bed for two days. Still, the landlady says, John, I feel for your girlfriend. She reminds me of my mother – back in the old days. — 42 — Oh, About the Money About the money, things are tense, so the dishes are done very slowly, so beautiful and savage in a vest. My dark-haired wife, tears in the sink, someone is waiting to crack, which one might that be?

I can tell you I feel like I’m sandwiched between a miserable person and a happy-go-lucky layabout. What is the relationship between people who don’t do much, just do some stuff, what stuff is that? The stuff we do. I’d rather just write, and she doesn’t say much, but just the other day my wife was telling me how good-looking I am. Many girls would go for you, she said. You are sharming. My wife looks into the ceiling. You are sharming, she says. — 43 — Rice from the Iceland Last week we didn’t have hardly any money and we need to be in agreement.
