ADVENTURES IN PROPERTY MANAMGEMENT

2017
SIBLING RIVALRY PRESS

One on top of the other, two women move to the building in two separate months. When the one woman moves in upstairs, a month after the other woman moves in downstairs, the audio of arrangement fills the downstairs unit. It sounds like splinters. Also, change.


A collection of linked flash fictions that draws on my experiences as an eternal apartment dweller and one-time property manager. This collection is woven together by the lives in a Seattle apartment building and the work required in order to maintain them.



"In Adventures in Property Management, Chelsea Werner-Jatzke slices open a prototypical apartment complex like a dollhouse or an architectural model, granting us voyeurs access to the lives crowded within. With keen energetic prose, she moves from unit to unit, unpacking the confusion and loneliness of living in spaces dense with other humans—as well as the hope we must sometimes share, for connection and communion with those whose unimaginable lives surround our own."
- Matt Bell, author of Scrapper
