Fiction. 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, Garnett Kilberg Cohen explores the complex ways in which people choose to remember--or not remember--the past. "I have been an admirer of Garnett Cohen's fiction since reading her first beautifully crafted collection, Lost Women, Banished Souls. In the time since the publication of that book, Cohen's stories have deservedly won several prizes, and her always artful writing has matured from deep insight into a kind of wisdom that the short story form seems particularly suited to. Her new collection of linked stories is her best work to date"--Stuart Dybek.
