TNB Publishes a Chicago Story

Victor David Giron

"An absurdist Chi-town Spoon River Anthology on crack, Mike Czyzniejewski's Chicago Stories is an explosion of imagination, a relentless churn of intellect and wit. In true Chicago style, this book tells it straight to your face and pulls no punches. Chicago Stories is easily the most fun I've had reading in quite some time."

— Alan Heathcock, author of VOLT

Check out the Newcity Lit review of Chicago Stories: 40 Dramatic Fictions. In true Chicago fashion, it's warming, brutal, honest, and fun.

"...Michael Czyzniejewski’s “Chicago Stories,” forty fictional monologues riffing on the common culture of the Windy City’s shared history, projected forward into a possible future. Not quite historical fiction—more like historical jazz." - Newcity Lit
