Review: 2019.010 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The story has the message that life is meaningless without someone to love you, no matter how much money you might have. It’s touching that they at least get a few days to say goodbye properly.

Con: It’s hard to see what the narrator saw in Martin; for the most part, the story depicts him as totally selfish and obsessed.
