Summary
In her flat above Drylands' newsagency, Janet is writing a book for the world's last reader. Little has changed here in fifty years, except for the coming of cable TV. Loneliness is almost a religion, and still everyone knows your business. And all the people are shadowed by violence of some sort - these people whose only victory over the town is in leaving it
