Kevin Tosca "When We All Grow Up" Thin Air Magazine

Kevin Tosca's short short "When We All Grow Up" in Thin Air Magazine is amazing. Contrasts in tone (between the narrative voice and the dialog of two near-adolescents) underscore what seems to be the meaning and purpose of the story, the meaning seeming to be to convey some sense of tragedy of once-hopeful young people who fuck up their lives.

The story achieves unity when its final lines roller-coaster to pitiful, poetic, absolute conclusion.

Check this out.
