Post Office Stories / Francine

Although she was not especially

good looking, Francine married

an unusually handsome man from India

named Kirin. They had a child they

inexplicably named Doris. Then Kirn went back

to Bombay forever. Francine married

lawyer Bill. He was OK. Bill died

suddenly of a heart attack, and Francine

had a breakdown. She took out 200 library books

one by one by one. Many were by Charles Dickens.

She never returned them.
