‘I keep a tight list. Very detailed. I stick to it. Even more so since she died. But I’m having trouble.’

The List is an award-winning story of an isolated woman struggling to establish order over chaos through obsessive list making. When a friend requests a favour she adds it to her list. Remembering to do it becomes a matter of life or death.
