A middle-aged man rummaging through his junk in the garage finds a porcelain cat he stored there many years ago. The cat reminds him of a long lost love and he wishes he could see her again. Will he indeed see her again and what are the memories he has of her, that he treasures so much. The story will tell.
Earnest Long, the author, has some experience or none of what he writes. His stories and books are in the best tradition of storytelling. He lives on his own and writes. And when not writing, he watches the TV or chats to girls.
Earnest Long writes fiction about people today who are trying to cope with modern technology and modern pressures. They have computer problems, date their female friends and have personal problems by the shed load.
I sort of got what (I think) the writer was trying to trying to convey in this short story, but it was rambling to the point of near incoherence. But at least the writing was good in a technical sense - correct spelling, grammar and punctuation. I'm wavering between a score of 2 or 3... As the previous reviewer scored it 2, I'll opt for 3 to give it an average rating of 2.5, which is probably about right.
