Bookslinger Update: “Last Cottage”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

9781566893381The story today is from The Rise & Fall of the Scandamerican Domestic by Christopher Merkner and published by Coffee House Press. In these stories, an enraged village gaslights unsuspecting vacationers and a young man delays an impending confession, fondling the nostrils of his mother’s pet pig. Sharp and uneasy, for these inheritors of tradition, that which binds them most closely—offering stability and identity and comfort—are precisely the qualities that set them back, pull them down, burden, limit, and ruin them.
