I read a short story decades ago that I'm sure was R.A. Lafferty. I don't remember the title but it started with: "Harriet under the floorboards..."
Anyone know the name of this story?

Sorry I,don't remember that. Harriet doesn't sound like a Lafferty character somehow. There is a historical novel called "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl." by one Harriet Jacobs, who was hiding under floorboards. But google already told you that ;)

But I only read a good portion of Lafferty, not all of it. And much of the reading has been a long time ago.

Thanks anyway, Nat.
I agree about Harriet! I'm just remembering parts of the first line so I probably have the name wrong.
I do remember that the story was kind of a twist on the classic Poe. The body under the floorboards was singing! Hopefully, I'll stumble on it eventually.
