Kind of Blue
The stories in Kind of Blue juke and jive in an unpredictable voice-driven romp. Set in rural Wisconsin, Minneapolis, Duluth, Milwaukee, Detroit, New Orleans, Houston, and South Florida, these are stories that start and stop and surprise, swerving all over the road. These are stories of wanderlust and music, loss and misdirection, disasters large and small. With the sound and rhythm of language driving each tale, Christopher Chambers gives voice to the working- and middle-class worlds of the American Midwest and the South.
Christopher Chambers has lived in Wisconsin, North Carolina, Michigan, Minnesota, Florida, Alabama, Texas, and Louisiana. He's worked as a farmhand, a carpenter, a bartender, and a lifeguard, and in a warehouse, a slaughterhouse, and an English Department. He is the author of three books: Delta 88 and Kind of Blue (fiction), and Inter/views (poetry), and co-editor of the anthology, Ice Fishing for Alligators.
