  • This is quite a short story and the plot is very contained as well It essentially follows the formation and destruction of a friendship between two women and a man, and there are no grand events or great excitements, but rather a quiet study of the characters and their emotions The cynical portrait of the women is particularly artful, but there is something a little lacking in the whole.
