The Sharp Edges of Anger, by Jamie Lackey

★★☆☆☆ Not Recommended

(Allegory) Rose knows she’s not supposed to keep shards of anger inside herself, but sometimes she save the pieces and hides them in the shed. (2,219 words; Time: 07m)

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story seems to be making the point that women suffer when they’re required to put their anger aside and that this eventually destroys them.

Con: This is the story of a psychopath who killed herself. It is very hard to care about a protagonist who has no emotional feelings for other people whatsoever—not even for her own child.
