Weekly Rumpus Fiction: Lucy Corin


The next Weekly Rumpus features fiction from Lucy Corin! Here’s an excerpt:

But the apocalypse is not the wobbling away.  The wobbling away is life persisting.  The apocalypse is him spinning, with the drink clink-clinking, delicate potential to go faster and faster, to drill a hole into the earth with his body-or-and-alternately, to dissipate centrifugally like rings through water, into droplets, into air.

McSweeney’s recently released Lucy Corin’s One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses. Also, if you’re in New York, don’t miss her readings on Thursday at Housing Works and Saturday at Cool Pony
