Cars Go Fast (Many Voices Project)
Synopses & Reviews
“Written with descriptive simplicity and easy grace.”—Joseph Caldwell
Characters leave: They hunker into cars and head out of town, book flights and hit the skies, or leave by drink or drugs or acts of violence. But they're all going—loners by default, part Jack Kerouac, part James Dean, part Charles Bukowski.
John Chattin earned an MFA in creative writing from The New School. His work has appeared in Bayou Magazine, The Powhatan Review, and Bellevue Literary Review. He is a human resources associate with The Vera Institute of Justice in New York. This is his first book.
Hopeful stories despite lives destroyed by various forms of escape; the toll of work on soul.
