    1. This is an excellent story. I've read it several times because the main character is a woman who despite her failed marriage goes on with her life. In fact she's not afraid of falling in love again. The writer describes places (her apartment and Manhattan), feelings and daily routines in a very detailed and appealing way.

    2. Just reading it again now! I think what I liked the first time is how it reads as an ode to post-war New Yorkybe it seems a little hokie now.
