On "Contention" by Jenny Pritchett (490 words) ***

This short short recounts a typical evening, typical at least in terms of how so many evenings seem to be in many households. I too remember the stack of papers to grade, the dread and drudgery of it (or of freelance work stretching before me after a full day at the office). And then there's this lack of desire to eat what's available in the house, and a lack of money to buy much else. Typical. We want out, out. That's Pritchett's short piece. Read it here at Fiction Attic.
