This is one of my favorites SK short stories. I never hear or read much about it.
...it's a good quick riff on the classic insanity tale...
It was a fun short story. I liked the way it began sweet and grew twisted. Romance isn't dead after all.
I liked it too. I also enjoy how sweet it starts off. As is goes you start to get that "uh oh" feeling because you know something is coming. Then the end.....
For reasons I can't explain very well, this is one of my favorite short stories, too.
There is not much in the way of explanation. We are simply given a situation we believe we recognize and dislocation does the rest, but it's the imagery that sticks with me.
The fresh air. The fresh flowers. The transistor radio. The kids who are there . . . then gone.
There's always a "her," isn't there?
Except when there isn't.
