Here is a new illo for Doug Piotter’s manuscript. Guess he got called to a plumbing job in a house that had a stuffed big horn sheep in the living room. It was in a cage and there was dirt on the floor under it. And a crazy couple lived there. How redundant to mention THAT!
Raymond Carver likened short stories to ‘glimpses’ — like when you walk past a motel room whose door is open a bit and see just enough to complete the rest of the story in your head. That is if you are so reclined — hahaha!
