    1. Tragic little story of an Asian immigrant domestic worker looking for new work after losing her previous job. What an absolute dick that kid was. Wish it was longer though, I feel like Mantel's real strength is in her 400+ page novels.




    2. Bleak, brutally observed, brilliantly written. Some mesmerising phrases will stick in my imagination, like: "The panicked thump, thump of music brutally dragged from its mother, whose name is melody; music wailing and thrashing like an orphan left in a field."


    3. One of the most witty, poignant and horrifying contemporary short fictions I've read in years. Absolutely scathing commentary on immigration labor and in particular the treatment of women trapped in dire circumstances set and controlled by the wealthy. Released as a stand-alone piece in the LRB.


    4. This was such an engaging short story, especially the questions it raises relating to consent, race, and class. I only wish it had of been longer.
