Apartments and Neighbors Winner!

Published on April 7, 2010

Our winning story for the Selected Shorts presents Apartments and Neighbors contest was sent in by Jane Rubinsky! What follows is Jane’s story:


The average American moves 11.7 times in his or her lifetime, but I’m willing to bet that number is much higher for New Yorkers. On April 7, Selected Shorts presents Apartments and Neighbors, an evening of tales from Raymond Carver, Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky and others about the mysterious, curious or just plain insane people we live close to.

We are giving away a pair of tickets to the Apartments and Neighbors event to the person who writes in with the most humorous or horrific story about their experiences with their apartments, landlords or neighbors. The winner will be chosen on March 31, and the story will be posted to our blog on April 1.
