An Excerpt- Not Fade Away by Geoffrey Girard


She tilts her head closer, like she does every time, forcing a polite smile. The other residents at this table are already cleared, waiting for someone to bring walkers or transport a wheelchair. “I’m sorry,” she says. “What’s that, Mr. Kurtz?”

“Therr goondaburnittudagrrownd.”

“Is that right?” Beth still hasn’t really heard him yet but his tone sounds like a declaration of some kind, and a reassuring “Is-That-Right” usually does the trick. It suggests she’s listening, open to learning something new. Old people like that.

“All done, Mr. Kurtz?” she asks.

Mr. Kurtz looks away and waves his hand at the plate with an accompanying “Bah” straight out of Ebenezer Scrooge. She freezes. Flushes. Almost four months at Heritage Springs and it still makes her nervous when they get angry. Always a jolt. Most of the time, they don’t get, well, anything. Just kinda sit there. Waiting.
