‘Dead Doormen’ by Helen Ellis

American Housewife was one of those books which arrived with a big fanfare. For a brief period of time, it seemed to be everywhere and then it never quite filled its promise. A huge shame because this is a sterling collection of stories. Ellis is sassy, hilarious and very dark.

‘Dead Doormen’ is about an unnamed (of course) wife who keeps house, in this case an apartment in the city, while her husband works. She spends her day hanging out with the doormen and making plans.
