Title: The Key by Eudora Welty
Date Read: 10 October 2008

Briefly: A strange tale about a married couple with disabilities, sitting in a waiting-room waiting for their train.
Afterthoughts: It wasn’t that this was a particularly bad story it was just a little too figurative and abstract for my liking.
Notable Quote: “Every now and then, as though he perceived some minute thing, a sudden alert, tantalized look would creep over the little man’s face, and he would gaze slowly around him, quite slyly. Then he would bow his head again; the expression would vanish; some inner refreshment had been denied him”
