#Lost Property (also written in Germany) is about a man feeling trapped in a public sector job, bored and put upon, scared to lose his security, and who finds comfort in eating. A chance meeting with a woman of unorthodox independent means and who likes to have a good time challenges his perspective of life and his view of money and work. The story, the final one in the collection Gentlemen’s Agreement and Other Stories, contrasts the fears and obsession with money shared by many people with secure jobs and the seemingly carefree life of the woman engaged in private enterprise. I also briefly touch on men’s hypocrisy in their dealings with such women.
