3 Things You Should Know About Peggy Paula

20 Nov

Lindsay Hunter has this story over at 52 Stories that’s just damn…

…the next day his wife came and Peggy Paula remained calm, invited her in, and the woman also seemed calm, going into the kitchen and Peggy Paula wondering if she felt comfortable enough to get herself something to sip, and the woman coming out with Peggy Paula’s bread knife held high in her fist and making a horrible sound with her mouth, then Peggy Paula realized the woman was sobbing with her mouth wide open, and her heart broke for the woman even as she lunged,…

Hunter writes breathless and if you ever hear her read you hear her never stop the big gulping breaths and the words like a vomit out of her like there’s no other way to be alive than to eat and breathe and how speaking is actually breathing words.
