Third Year in Winter, by Lily King, book review

Only what King wrote was great. Her last story, “The Man at the Door”, is a special work of magical realism. The young storyteller, an aspiring novelist, has one simple goal: “All she wants is to get back to the page on her desk.” But her baby won’t nap anymore, give her the peace she needs. That moment would soon come when the doorbell rang, followed by a knock on the window, “getting louder and louder until she was sure a hand would burst before she could reach the door.” .” To her own surprise, she let the stranger in. The man works for her publishing house, and he continues to praise her for her work, delivering a critique filled with misconceptions about fictional writing. Politeness quickly turns into something else, a confrontation that reveals the regrets and hopes of both the narrator and the intruder. When she finally breaks free of him and returns to the page that’s called her her life, she finds an end to her own book — and this one — feeling triumphant.
