Fiction Spotlight – Eugenio Volpe

Lately, Facebook has become more and more a great source of writing inspiration as friends share articles, poems and stories. Yesterday, Colette Sartor posted a link for a short shory American Idle by Eugenio Volpe on Spork Press, which I have since read several times.

The story is a great example of an author using humor to lower the reader’s guard against a powerful dramatic storyline, as well as creating a lens – favorite songs – as a way to quickly create multi-dimensional characters. Please give American Idle a try, and let me know what you think.
