The moment when the woman says to the flightless, depressed bird, “Get out of here. I’m going to do something desperate,” and then unexpectedly slides through the wall into the ivy-choked apartment next door, leaving her clothes in shreds on the floor, is not only beautifully realized but also, for me, absolutely unforgettable.
Should I post the rest of the story? You tell me.
