Below is a sneak preview:
In the first magnetic lines of The White Field by Douglas Cole, the narrator Tom enters a surreal purgatory: “I walked into the sun. It seared the road and the rooftops, intense, blinding.” For Tom, the bright heat greets his release from prison, but not as a mere celebration of freedom….
Grateful to Doubly Mad, a beautiful literature and art journal in upstate New York, for printing my short story, “Celebration.” After a night of drinking Curt learns Artie lost a wad of money and maybe his friendship along with it.
Here are the first two pages:
Friends on the road in western Kansas, Pearl waiting for her turn to drive. Look closely and you’ll see a cat’s head nestled under Pearl’s nose.
Curt agrees to try a spiedi, the local Binghamton delicacy, but he faces a more portentous decision.
Thank you @TheFictionPool!
