THE HOUSE OF ZABKA

Excerpt from my novel Another Kind of Mission.
A hybrid novel (in the form of an immigrant memoir, prose poetry, and interlocking surreal flash fictions).
Some influences include Richard Brautigan, Miranda July, Lukas Tomin, David Lynch, Guy Maddin, and Leonora Carrington (plus more).

Based on a true story.
Just published over at Empty Mirror magazine. With a link to audio of the story.
Thank you Empty Mirror.
