The narrator, a sculptor, recounts meeting a mysterious man in a railway station. The moment the man opened his “immense, sunken and widely luminous eyes”, the narrator knew that the stranger would become his friend-–”the only friend of one who had never possessed a friend before”.

Here we are again with other okay short story from H.P Lovecraft.
It is important to mention that this short story was an experiential short story from H.P Lovecraft about the unreliable and hysterical narrator. This short story also reminded me of Edgar Allan Poe’s short story named “Tell Tale Heart”.
