Abstract

THE UNEMPLOYED/ SOMETIME DURING THE NIGHT she'd heard him in the Uving room, his fingers pecking the keys on his laptop, sending e-maU messages to people that in most cases he'd never met: folks in the coffee group, the beer group, the Mercedes Benz group, the bluegrass and oldtime music lovers group, any one of the ten or fifteen photographers' groups that he corresponded with. Most mornings, she found printouts scattered aU over the place. One day last week, she'd come across an exchange of views that had consumed twenty-two pages of continuous-feed paper. The subject was diesel fuel additives. She got up and went into the kitchen and put the water on for coffee. On the way to the bathroom, she heard him snoring, the sounds coming through the door of the room he slept in. She'd gone inside that room yesterday for the first time in two months. Brown paper sacks from Piggly Wiggly lined the baseboards. Inside each sack lay two or three copies of a magazine--Auto Monthly, Bluegrass Unlimited, Photography, Consumer Reports--or back issues of the Jackson paper or the Delta Democrat-Times. Some of the magazines and newspapers were as much as five years
