Wild and Wonderful by Tom Bennitt - A Short Story Month Selection
Fried Chicken and Coffee is one of my favorite online zines for literary fiction. They have a great blend of poetry, flash, and short stories, but most of all the stories are about regular people like me. You can feel their heartbreak, their warmth, and their cruelty. Yesterday I read "Wild and Wonderful" by Tom Bennitt and today I'm still thinking about that story. The sadness of the narrator's life and that incredible last line that makes you laugh out loud.
