Phrases I Liked: Brian Oliu

Periodically I will read some short stories by a contemporary author and post a few of my favorite phrases from them.

This week's author is Brian Oliu, who teaches at the University of Alabama and whose writing sits somewhere in between fiction and non-fiction, defying easy categorization. Lyrical non-fiction might be the least bad label for what he does.

Oliu was also the guest editor of SunDog Literature's recent "Games" issue, which is worth a read.
