Guest Recommendation No. 3

Andrew Ervin recommends PRAYING DRUNK, a new collection by Kyle Minor.

Praying Drunk is set in the immediate aftermath of the death of God, when each of us is forced to take responsibility for our own actions and thoughts and ways of being in this world. I can’t think of a tougher challenge a writer could give himself or another book since the Duino Elegies that succeeds so spectacularly in excavating the terror of personal freedom. Kyle Minor’s characters carry the unenviable but glorious burden, one we all share, of being all too human.

PRAYING DRUNK is being made available to the public starting February 4th, 2014 by Sarabande Books.
