Like an Edith Wharton novel writ-tiny, Our Bed, Our Life carries us into the privacy of the bedroom to witness a young couple's disagreement. At issue is whether or not it's safe - now that they live together - to leave their front door unlocked at night. Is the woman paranoid or the man cavalier, and will they survive their first argument?

Any additional comments?
A surprising story, rich though brief. Lingers in the mind long after the last moment. I am wandering down the hallway with these two characters.
