"Lullaby" I've just always loved the way it rolls off the tongue.
Good read. Interesting and little scary. I had to admit I chuckled a good bit about Adam Neumann's company WeWork transitioning to WeCompany in order to start up real-estate and education missions. It automatically brought to mind the book We by Yevgeny Zamyatin. Maybe he wasn't so wrong in his prediction....
Seems strange to me that his wife would've gotten angry with him and not the media
I think you're just supposed to fill in the circumstances with nameless horror because that's pretty much all the subject seems to have experienced. When reading I was thinking about the lack of specific detail and the limitation of the main character's viewpoint being our only insight into the story's world. I would say that the goal is to put the reader on the same level of awareness as the thing in the basement and allow our minds to fill in whatever is upstairs. That is what makes it most relatable to the real world; our experiences will conjure up things we abhor to fill the gap in detail about what's outside the basement.
