Laura Tansley’s ‘Rings Only Get Lost Down Drains in Films’ is up on Necessary Fiction as the next installment in my writer-in-residency. Go and read it. But open a window first – it creates a wonderfully stressful atmosphere.
Below is a tense piece of the domestic from Laura Tansley. I love her use of detail of life in an early nineties household, and the subtle ramping of stress between the woman and girls, even as they are introduced as a single unit – it appears as if they are, in fact – like a single organism attacking its own cells.
