Thank you for continuing to print fine writing, both contemporary and classic. One would expect that, as a former literature major, I would have come across Lawrence Sargent Hall’s work before. I read “The Ledge” four days ago. My chest still hurts.

I went back and forth between believing that everything in Lawrence Sargent Hall’s story “The Ledge” [February 2016] would work out, and believing it was a tragedy in the making. I understand the effect it had on Sy Safransky as a father, and can attest that, even for a nonparent, it’s a haunting work of fiction.
