God’s Overcoat

The Oxford American has published Kevin Brockmeier’s fantastical tale, A Fable with Slips of White Paper Spilling from the Pockets. My only complaint is that the title is unwieldy, and not at all reflective of the simple magic of the story. I heard Kevin read a version of it at this year’s Arkansas Literary Festival and I was completely entranced by it, so I’m very excited that it has not only been published, but that it is available digitally for dispersal around the Internet. I think it will become the most popular destination on the OA’s server. Give it a read and send it along to others.
