A Change in the Air

A Change in the Air
by Carol Roan
The winner of the 2018 Serena McDonald Kennedy Award.

A Change in the Air twists in the windy whispers of gossip, and while never shy about the dangers of stagnancy and fear of the outsider, these stories also take a good hard satirical look at the breezy self- satisfaction of the citified interloper. Spoon River Anthology might be an ancestor, but A Change in the Air is a darker descendant more willing to lash out at what’s gone so terribly askew in American life.
