A Girl In The Dumpster
28 November 2011
In the sweltering darkness that envelops an alley in the small town of Candlesberg, Wisconsin, a homeless woman approaches a dumpster in search of food. She finds instead a mysteriously mewling bundle. Reaching inside she discovers a patch of matted hair, a tiny ear, a smooth little shoulder. She knows what to doif only she can conquer her compulsion to drop the newborn and run.
Anne Hedlin is trying to get to sleep in her apartment above her resale shop when she is startled by a banging from the shop below. Annes solitary life is transformed when she takes in the homeless woman and the baby she finds at her back door. In its first week, the newborn also profoundly touches the lives of Annes shy teenaged niece, a storefront preacher and his wife, a successful divorced realtor, and the realtors teenaged daughter, whose life of drug abuse and careless sex has become a dumpster of a different sort.
With complex characters and surprising twists author Jack Apfel has given us a compelling story of how lives can be knocked off their seemingly inevitable trajectories by an unexpected event, like someone finding a girl in a dumpster.
