A mother and her son dream of a life beyond their means in
this classic short story by Tobias Wolff.
the story of a mother and her son who are spending the afternoon viewing
apartments on a chilly day in Seattle, Washington. The two have no intention of
renting one—they can only afford to live in a meager boarding house.

On this particular afternoon, their last stop is a beautiful
Victorian home—far beyond anything they could ever afford. And for the first
time, wishful thoughts blur with harsh reality as the son becomes entranced by
the apartment and the life it represents.
