Patry Francis' story, "The Dead Woman from the Newspaper," was probably the only story that upon receiving it I realized I had read it before - in The Ontario Review where it was originally published.
The story of Johnny Sheehan and his wife, Alice, grabbed me with the opening scene - Alice reading the newspaper to Johnny on the bus (in the past he'd given up private transportation as immoral, and also had glaucoma and couldn't read for himself) and read about a woman found in the trunk of a car, dead. He wondered aloud about the smell, which brought forth a comment from a man not wanting to hear about rotting corpses so soon after breakfast, which brought another woman into the conversation, stating that we all were interested in murder and that sort of thing. I believe another three or four bus riders got involved in the conversation before it was over and, again, that scene did it for me. I had to include it in Visiting Hours (Press 53, 2008).
