Joyce Carol Oates, "Landfill"

A college kid is found dead in a landfill.

(from The Ecco Anthology of Contemporary American Fiction)

This story is amazing and heartbreaking, a crazy stream-of-conscious thing that jumps through time, and from character to character. So good. So sad. I assume it’s based on the true story I remember reading and hearing about.
