Cannonball Express

Reading is always a gamble; this time, nosing around in the nonfiction section of Dislocate, a journal out of the University of Minnesota, I came up aces. See for yourself. Check out the blazing language and fierce economy of Joni Tevis' "Second String," about the glory days of an old carnie who, in a pinch, once had to take over as the human cannonball. Get past that first colon, and you'll feel a little blown away yourself.
