READING: If you are in the parsha of caring for an elderly parent this fiction article by Lore Segal will help you attain some appreciation of your love one’s fears. Or perhaps you are past this juncture and there is too much pain to look back.

The first paragraph indicates graphically Lotte’s full life-friends, by the choice of the word commodious-roomy, a space offering long unending vistas from on high. Haven’t you wondered what it is like looking out of a Manhattan penthouse? If you have read Anton Chekhov in translation, then you know that the gun that appears in the first act will turn up in the last.

Chekhov’s gun is a dramatic principle that every memorable element in a fictional story must be necessary and irreplaceable, and any that are not should be removed.

Remove everything that has no relevance to the story. If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it’s not going to be fired, it shouldn’t be hanging there.— Anton Chekhov[

Here the velvet sofa described in the first paragraph is the gun that surfaces later in the story.

“It mattered that Lotte’s apartment was commodious. Lotte liked to boast that when she lay in bed and looked past the two closest water towers, past the architectural follies and oddities few people notice on Manhattan’s rooftops, she saw all the way to the Empire State Building. On the velvet sofa in Lotte’s living room, from which she could observe the Hudson River traffic as far as the George Washington Bridge, the caregiver sat watching television.

“Get rid of her,” Lotte said.

Samson dropped his voice, as if this might make his mother lower hers. “As soon as we find you a replacement.”
