We Were Flying to Chicago by Kevin Clouther

We Were Flying to ChicagoWe Were Flying to Chicago by Kevin Clouther
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Not a real review because I'm a little biased (best short story collection EVER) but more of a quick summary:

  • The title story could easily be the anthem of our generation. The story is practically an act of rebellion.
  • The Prophet of Wyaconda is my new favorite short story of all time. I think it might have converted me a little.
  • Absolutely everyone who has read Isabelle and Colleen loves it. There's so much here that it's hard to break it down, but I could read it over and over again without getting tired.
  • Charleston for Breakfast really reminds me of our time in the Shenandoah Valley and the angst of being in my twenties though I did not experience those two things simultaneously, I can now imagine what that would be like.

If you're not a big reader, I suggest you read Isabelle and Colleen first, and then Charleston for Breakfast, and then T-Bone Capone, as these are probably the most accessible ones.
