Great to hear Laird Hunt read three new short stories yesterday evening at the Issue Project Room at the Old American Can Factory in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
Something's afoot in Tipton County, somewhere in a hidden Indiana...a woman cannot recognize the faces of those she loves...a newcomer is stabbed to death...an old man and a teenager tell each other stories by a bonfire of raked leaves as the first snowflakes begin to fall...did I mention that something strange happened back a time in Tipton County?
Laird is as wonderful a reader as he is a writer.
