Dispatch Thirteen: Words and Song
From PH Madore:
dispatch thirteen has arrived to a largely silent reception party. It is the first issue to feature a song in addition to the story. It won’t be the last. Unless something goes wrong, it’s going to be a regular feature.
Well, not quite so silent. The song is “Midnight! (I’m Not Famous Yet)” by Mike Young’s music project thing, The Cinnamon Urns.
Dispatch Thirteen features a story by Duncan Whitmire called “La Place d’Albertas.”
Here is an excerpt:
We met while she was studying abroad in New York. I gave a guest lecture at her school and she approached afterwards with some schmuck wearing horn rimmed glasses and a thrift store blazer. Later I saw her again, alone, in the lobby, and we exchanged email addresses. Her name was Grace and she wrote three months later, from Aix. The timing was right and I hopped the first plane over.
Enjoy the read/listen, and contact Madore through dispatch litareview if you’ve got an idea for the next issue.
