How We Move the Air
In the spirit of Denis Johnson’s Jesus’ Son and Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge, Columbia College professor Garnett Kilberg Cohen’s How We Move the Air tells the story of musician Jake Doyle’s suicide and how, over time, it affected those who knew him. In seven linked stories, Cohen explores the complex ways in which people choose to remember – or not remember – the past. Cohen has been the recipient of numerous literary awards and her work has appeared in publications such as American Fiction, The Antioch Review, and Other Voices. How We Move the Air is her second story collection, after Lost Women, Banished Souls.
