‘The Literary Life of Russian Airports’

“What begins as a glance extends into lingering contemplation. She is going through my passport page by page, as if reading a novel. Then she turns to the computer for some corresponding information and back again. Her eyes have lit up. My first reaction is pride, that she likes it, but then I remember that the book I’m working on is in my bag and that she’s looking at my name, date of birth and other personal data.”

The Missing Slate’s first Story of the Week is out and it’s “The Literary Life of Russian Airports,” a story connected to “Literary Theft” that was published in Drunken Boat.
