A House on Shaky Ground

Malkie Schulman

City Smart

Turning Tides

As told to Leah Gebber

Dressed in silk or lace and wearing a large hat decorated with peacock feathers, my mother used to lean over my bed and kiss me goodnight. Then, she’d be off, again, accompanying my father to the many social evenings required by his business. Old Mrs. Cooper would stay with me, but although she dozed off on the couch downstairs, I was never able to sleep. I would lie in bed and read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, or whatever wonderland I was immersed in. And I would wait.
