Mr. Bear reads from DEATH, DESIRE, AND OTHER DESTINATIONS, Tara Isabel Zambrano’s luminous collection of flash published by Okay Donkey Press. Strange, lyrical, and piercing, these stories hover at thresholds of life, death, lust, grief, love, and sorrow. Featuring groovy music by People in Cars, a mini-interview with Bob Records, and a tasty writing prompt and recipe from Alina Stefanescu. Plus, Miss Mousie has a case of spring fever!
