Short story: “From the Diary of an Invalid”
by look i have opinions
“From the Diary of an Invalid,” by Richard Burgin
Appeared here in Per Contra issue 26, winter 2012
I like the characters a lot, but the ending is too inconclusive for my taste. It doesn’t represent a great enough change in the main character, in my opinion.
The occasional ellipses seem to indicate the breaks between diary entries; there are no actual section breaks or dates. An unusual choice, but it works.
