The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!
Today’s story comes from We Were Flying to Chicago by Kevin Clouther, published by Black Balloon Publishing. In this striking debut collection, characters find unexpected moments of profound insight while navigating the monotony of daily life. Here we find a man who drives to the wrong mountain, a hubcap cleaner who moonlights as a karaoke star, and a deliveryman whose urgent letters have no willing recipient. While lulled by the deceptively simple rhythm of the ordinary, Kevin Clouther offers the instant before momentous change—the view over the cliff, the intake of breath before a decision, a glimpse of stark vulnerability, of faith and hope.
“Kevin Clouther’s collection of wry, funny, big-hearted stories is utterly satisfying and unexpected, like scratching an itch you didn’t know you had.”—Rebecca Johns
