Short Story #252: The Willow Walk by Sinclair Lewis
Title: The Willow Walk
Author: Sinclair Lewis
ReflectionThis was a rather fun and well-told story. In some ways, it reminds me of some of the modern "perfect crime" stories like Oceans 11 or The Italian Job. However, I also like how Lewis goes into the psychology of John and the ways in which he has essentially formed his own prison as a result of his crime. In that, there are definitely elements of Poe at work.
