Alan Heathcock recommends
Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons (2021)
Keith Rosson
"There's a fierceness to Rosson's intellect, a wildness to his imagination, a crackling energy in his prose. The stories in Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons are often strange and sometimes funny and always irresistible. Like a brakeless train tearing through the tunnel of my mind, the propulsion and potency of this collection woke me up in the way only the best literature can."
