Overview

A Vintage Shorts “Short Story Month” Selection
 
In the northern hills of Pakistan, by the border with Afghanistan, a drug deal goes horribly wrong. Trey’s friend has been captured. His girlfriend, Michelle, succumbs to her heroin addiction. And the only person who Trey can speak to is the Pashtun holding him captive.
 
In this beautiful and tragic story, McInerney’s first and a favorite of George Plimpton’s, the much-lauded author of the forthcoming novel Bright, Precious Days, explores in classic form the alienation facing urban American youth, loss, and the seductive pull of drugs. Selected from the collection How It Ended.
