Bookslinger Update: “A Noise In The World”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

Today’s short story comes from The World Afloat: Miniatures  by M.A.C. Farrant, published by Talonbooks. In this stunning collection of mini observations, master of the absurd M.A.C. Farrant interrupts typical, everyday events—drinking tea, going to the doctor—with intensely surreal, laugh-out-loud moments that satisfy our collective desire for escape and renewal from the monotony of modern life. What happens when a whimsical spirit becomes captive to a middle-aged body? What does the “wrap-up dinner for the Love Your Package Workshop” look like? Can one place an ad for a “lost” mind? Can a soggy tomato salad really end a marriage? Childhood and bad parenting, sex and depravity, and love and divorce are all deftly handled in this hot flash of a book that gets straight to the heart of it all—through the rear window.
