    Summary

    She asked once, how Abby met women.

    A smile curled across Abby’s face. “There are places… in the city. Beyond that, sometimes there’s just a way of looking at someone. The way they look back at you. A gaze that lingers a little too long.”

    Carol knew what Abby was alluding to. She’d experienced it countless times herself, with Abby, with other women. Sometimes unreciprocated, Carol left staring on her own, other times there was eye contact that lasted beyond simple acknowledgement. Carol had always chalked it up to pure admiration, though. And she’d never been compelled enough to act further, as much as she would’ve liked to. No, she wasn’t one to take chances, only pursuing sure bets.

    Until one day, she went to the store. Goddamn Frankenberg’s.

    Summary

    I’d like to think of this as a throwback to Patricia Highsmith’s noir genre. What if two ordinary people, Therese Belivet and Carol Aird, found themselves embroiled in events spinning rapidly out of control? Who is to be trusted? What is to be believed? Can one of them actually trust her lover’s memories of the events?

    Summary

    'Therese looked and saw, in the light that spilled from the house, a tear, like a shooting star, on Carol's cheek.' An album of scenes - across various locations and months and years - between Carol and Therese, rather like Therese's photo album in words. (Now incorporates two fragmented plotlines about Therese and her work and Carol and her Rindy, and how the two converge, or separate.)

    Extra scene: A new day 'In New York (February 1959) II'.
