I smelled natural gas and told my mom to call bge 3 weeks ago. No one listened to me.

Today, I tell her, “mom, the basement really smells like natural gas. I think you should at least ask bge if that’s ok.” “FINE KIRSTIE. But I know it’s nothing. It’s just because the basement is closed up all day until we come home.”

Now we have 5 bge trucks out front because we were leaking natural gas.


3 cheers for Kirstie for saving a family of 4 and a dog.

I really don’t like this story.

I think the author romanticized the metaphor of gas leaking into her home and made the underlying sexual tensions among the BGE workers far too blatantly obvious. She also overused and dramatized the cliche use of the rivalrous love triangle with the inclusion of the implied younger family member.

Her ‘in-depth’ self-discovery of the main character is quite disappointing as the reader is left with no fulfillment in that the character has changed her angst-filled life and overcome her anger with the mother. This is a extract that Freud would have a field day with.

The only metaphor in this passage of “Christy’s Anal Prolapse: A Memoir” that is of any literary value, would be the assumation of the father taking no part in this. He is absent throughout the entire anecdote and could possibly be a deep-meaningful message of the main character’s need for a father figure in her life.

As for the author’s style, it is very unrefined and underdeveloped; “I smelled natural gas… No one listened to me” she begins with these two rhythmic, stressed-syllabic, metered lines as if she were preparing to write a verse- therefore making the memoir an anthology- but then she stops to break the paragraph and begin a new thought train by turning this short passage into an anecdote. This could have been of literary merit had she continued this throughout the pages of “Prolapse” however, she does not and is therefore, faltering in her continuity.

Overall, this just proves that Stachowsky’s work is lacking any creativity while also being uninteresting and underdeveloped. This author is definitely not one that I would buy a book from. 0/10 would not recommend.
