Fingerprints, Joel Church’s first collection of flash fiction, captures both the enticing and the mundane. Set against the backdrop of Washington, D.C., Church’s characters explore topics ranging from sexuality and drug abuse to childhood and loss. These stories extend from two to ten pages long, and their brevity makes them an excellent read on the metro; I could read for only one or two stops and not feel completely lost the next time I opened the book.
Local artist and author Joel Church has recently released Fingerprints, his first work of fiction, and he will be holding a book launch at Sova Wine Bar tomorrow (Wednesday) evening! I’ll see you there.
