300 short stories:: story 133

story: American Dreams 

author: Peter Carey

year: 1974

where: airplane, somewhere over Europa

note: My first Peter Carey short story and the theme works in nicely with a non-fiction essay I have been working on, actually. Bingo!

a line: “On Bald Hill there are half a dozen telescopes through which the Americans can spy on the town and reassure themselves that it is the same down there as it is on Bald Hill.”
