May 2012 (Issue 2)
Issue Two of The Big Click starts off with a snippet of Dan Fante’s forthcoming novel Point Doom, in which a recovering alcoholic attempts to resolve his issues with PTSD and Jack Kerouac. Our second story is “The Man Who Loved Birds,” the tale of, well, a man who loved birds, especially illegal-to-possess wild ravens, and how that works out for him after an earthquake destroys his apartment (and his marriage). For our nonfiction, Tom Piccirilli breaks every writer’s heart in “The Mermaid’s Melody” when he muses about being a midlist author hoping for that elusive “breakthrough book.”
