** The Apartment by Greg Baxter


In The Apartment, the hero and narrator searches for an apartment in a cold, snowy, unnamed Eastern European city, accompanied by a young woman. It’s a stream of consciousness story where he relives bits of his upbringing and his tour of duty in Iraq, without ever confiding in his new friend but flashing enough money around that it’s clear something not quite copasetic happened.

He does get the apartment but the rambling narrative gets old about mid-way through.
