Steven Millhauser, "The Room in the Attic"

A boy strikes up a friendship with a girl who lives in total darkness.

(from Dangerous Laughter)

Kick ass. This was long and crazy one. The main guy isn’t an unreliable narrator in the more common sense, that you can’t count on his judgments. No, this kid is just a bad reporter. Ask some question, man! Do some investigating. Tell us what you mean when you say confusing things. No, don’t. The story’s better this way, maybe? No. I wanna know.

Read this one on the plane to St. Louis.
