Peter Orner: Last Car over the Sagamore Bridge
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Peter Orner says his poignantly distilled, often tiny short stories are attempts to "create silence on the page." His most recent collection, Last Car Over the Sagamore Bridge (Little, Brown and Company), follows new and recurring characters through scenes of dailiness and grief. Orner reflects on his fiction's emotional brevity, as well as its subtle sense of humor or lightness.
