Cultivating of Succulents, The
In this reflective piece, Howard, is an agoraphobic man living in the attic of his mother's house. Since graduating from high school, Howard has never left his apartment. Jim was Howard's friend all through high school, but since graduation, has became a teacher, moved to Maine, got married and divorced, and has moved back to town. A chance meeting of Jim and Howard's mother in the local grocery store prompted Jim to pay his old friend a visit. He soon learns that spending time with Howard is like running into a buzz-saw- moments of tenderness and loneliness paired with sarcastic, biting wit, verbal abuse, and even physical violence. Still, Jim perseveres, and, after multiple visits to Howard's apartment, he unwittingly uncovers the underlying reason for Howard's agoraphobia, and ultimately helps him find the strength to leave his apartment and rejoin the world of the living
