On Saturday, January 28 at A Different Path Gallery, Brockport, NY, and really all of New York were introduced to the presence and voice of Rob Carney for the first time. It was a fun reading, and here’s the beginning of the reading.

His work has appeared in Mid-American Review, Quarterly West, and dozens of other journals, as well as Flash Fiction Forward (W. W. Norton, 2006). He lives in Salt Lake City.
