Day One Hundred Sixty: "PS" by Jill McCorkle


A woman writes a letter to her therapist explaining her mania and why she feels her therapist is the cause of it rather than the cure. Told in the first person, the voice in this story is convincing and original and it keeps the reader engaged from the opening sentence of the letter as addressed to Dr. Love:

"By now you have gotten several letters from me and this will probably be the last."

This story absolutely doesn't stop. It's funny, disturbing, sad, and engrossing. I'd read more of these letters if there were more to read.

A link to the story online is here:
