story: The Impractical Door 

author: Chris Haven

year: 2018

where:  Abu Dhabi Central Post Office, Ladies-only waiting area

note: This time last year I was reading Mohsin Hamid’s Exit West, another story with doors.

a line: “I opened the door probably six months ago. Anyhow, I am bathed in light. It is a gorgeous, golden light that feels like nothing I’ve ever experienced.”
