My sister was telling me about a story she read a long while back, about a man who went to work, but actually panhandled. She said she thought it was by SK, and I told her I was positive it was, as I could recall reading it also. I'm thinking it's a story in one of the collections, but can't remember which one, or what the story title is. A little help for a weak mind, please?!

It's the third story in Hearts in Atlantis called "Blind Willie".
Thanks! I'm visiting my sis for a week, and posted my question after I went to bed last night. This morning I told her I'd asked on the forum, and she'd already remembered! Then I REALLY felt bad, because I've read "Hearts in Atlantis". (Back in 1998. I only remember that because we'd just moved, and I recall sitting in the tiny kitchen of our temporary efficiency rental reading that book.) Guess a re-read is on the agenda.

One of my favorite S.K. books, especially the 2nd story, "Hearts in Atlantis".
