Door in your Eye

Door in your Eye is a curious short story by Wells Tower about a large hearted old man viewing the world from a studio flat window. The sense of unfulfilled desire, world weariness and alienation - contained by doors and windows - immediately suggested Edward Hopper . . . which sounds unbearably sad but without spoiling the story let's just say it doesn't turn out as you might expect. Door in your Eye is taken from a new collection by Wells Tower called Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned (Granta).
