Reader's Diary #2272- Lore Segal: Around the Corner You Can't See Around

 I do believe that money can't buy happiness (necessarily), but I also think that folks struggling just for basic needs must look at miserable people who are financially well-off with a particular annoyance. 

It's a cliched scenario of course but in the right hands there's still some fodder for a good piece of literature. Unfortunately it evolves into a pretentious existential slog in Lore Segal's "Around the Corner You Can't See Around."

It felt like the kind of dialogue New Yorker readers would have.
