Bookslinger Update: “Being Dead in South Carolina”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

9781935248446This week’s story comes from Jacob White’s sad, fierce, and funny new take on the South Being Dead in South Carolina, published by  Leapfrog Press. Set largely in the modern South, the stories in Being Dead in South Carolina concern people who no longer recognize themselves, who have arrived, like the Sunbelt itself, to a strange day that seems disconnected from all the old days, the old stories, the old selves. Yet it’s always on this day we must answer for ourselves—right an overturned car, recover the body of a brother, convince a son of our worth and his. We are adrift with bad judgment, a little loose in the head, but searching for the correction.
