Abstract

Short story written in free indirect style, set in provincial market town in which the central character confronts what is enduring and what is transient through an encounter in an antique shop. In this short story, a man drifts into a bric-a-brac shop in a rural town to find the past confronting him. He is snared into a lie about his dead wife that haunts the story with images of the past and with actions that draw him deeper into an unintended act of deception.
