Welcome to Micro, a podcast for short, but powerful writing. I’m your host, Drew Hawkins.
Bathtubs, Camaros, and under eye cream. Welcome to the Season Three finale episode of Micro. What a wild and wonderful ride this season has been. In this episode, we have three pieces straight out of quotidien life—on connection, a yearning for love, and loneliness.
Like so many plans-gone-awry, our first piece bubbles up with good intent and deflates in reality. Written by Dave Housley and published in Hobart, it’s called “Cialis.” Enjoy.
Dave Housley’s third novel, The Other Ones, is coming out in January from Alan Squire Publishing. You can find him on Twitter at @housleydave, or on his website at housleydave.com.
Our second piece could almost be an email from a husband to a wife, filled with everyday occurrence. And somehow, despite its specificity, Sean Ennis’s piece “Gnashing,” published in buffalobuffalobuffalo is quietly poignant. Enjoy.
Sean Ennis is the author of CHASE US: Stories (Little A) and more of his work can be found at seanennis.net and @Seanennis110 on Twitter.
Fun fact about our third piece—Dave Eggers doesn’t have a cellphone. So, here he is, reading his favorite short piece called “Accident” to me on the phone as I recorded him. Enjoy.
Dave Eggers is an American writer, editor, and publisher. He wrote the best-selling memoir A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. You can find him on his website at daveeggers.net.
