This week on The Easy Chair: Long Lake, a tale about revisiting a devastating past. After her father dies, Alice goes back to Long Lake and the small cottage where she spent her childhood summers. Alice is pulled by a compulsion she doesn’t fully understand. Terrified yet resolute, she confronts what happened to her, as well as Harry, her old next-door neighbor. Trigger warning: this story is about sexual abuse. Not an easy topic, but this story has roots in experiences more common than most of us can imagine. Tune in.
