The Man Who Was Afraid of Falling

Joseph Wallace (2011)

Ivor’s life is turned upside down after a falling plant pot sparks a series of paranoid reactions.


  1. I love it. So charming.

    This reminds me of a short story one of my favorite authors wrote about an elderly man who falls down in his own backyard and can’t get up, so he just lies there daydreaming till his elderly wife comes out looking for him, falls down also, and they just lie there together, unable to get up…..

    I don’t remember how it ends, but I don’t think it had the uplifting ending this short had.

What's on your mind?
