‘I reached for the table but it slipped away. Elbowing the chrome chair didn’t work either, I tried to get a grip and it scraped away from me…’
Jeanette conveys a very subtle, yet rending sensation of grief and hysteria. The character’s emotions seem wild and almost insane, until you look back at the title and their state of mind clicks into place. Really well done in so few words, and a very moving read.
Please take a moment to read Drowning my Sorrows and leave Jeanette some feedback.
