Carolina Sanîn, "The Conductor’s Daughter"

A little girl on a train won’t stop bothering a couple on their way to Armero.

(from Zoetrope All-Story, Spring 2009)

This was a fun and silly little story. Was it about anything other than a precocious bored little girl killing time on the train? Yeah, sort of. The real story might have been the young (high? desparate, somehow) couple who kept making weirdly poetic conversation. The conductor’s daughter and the fat man had questions for them, but never got any real info. So neither did we.
This is Zoetrope’s Latin American Issue.
