WHAT IS A BATHTUB?

When I lived in Milton Keynes, before immigrating to the States, I wanted to take a bath with my 8 year old girlfriend. It was very exciting: the bathtub. What is your memory of bathtub? A lot can happen in a bathtub. The universe is a bathtub. Your mind is a bathtub.

Here is a microfiction about bathtubs, in the 1980s, from my novel Never Mind the Beasts, forthcoming from Dostoyevsky Wannabe in May 2020. It is called “The Spirit of the Bathtub.”
