    "I glanced out the window as my train pulled into the station and saw the girl who killed my son." So begins Josh Rolnick's powerful debut collection of eight stories, which utilizes a richly focused narrative style accenting the unavoidable tragedies of life while revealing the grace and dignity with which people learn to deal with them. The stories - four set in New Jersey and four in New York - span the wide geographic tapestry of the area and demonstrate the interconnectedness of both the neighboring states and the residents who inhabit them.

    Would you listen to Pulp and Paper again? Why?

    Absolutely.

    "I glanced out the window as my train pulled into the station and saw the girl who killed my son." Now that's how you begin a short story, or in this case, a gripping collection of them.

    Pulp and Paper is a masterpiece of short fiction in which author Josh Rolnick creates vivid worlds with complicated characters who are both relatable and extraordinary. Each story is emotional and nostalgic without being sappy or insincere.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pulp and Paper?

    I could read "Funny Boy" over and over again.


    What about Robert Fass’s performance did you like?

    It was rich and warm but not distracting.


    If you could rename Pulp and Paper, what would you call it?

    Pulitzer Prize winner "Pulp and Paper"


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend you pick up a copy and escape (if briefly) into this brilliant author's stunning imagination.
