UK poet and teacher, Shanta Everington’s Drowning in Cherryade conjures candy-colored scenes of youth mirrored in an examination of memories. Overwhelmed by first experiences, the poems are at once told with a resignedness to their outcomes, while maintaining a perspective of awkward fumbling for an anchor. This parallax affect helps complete the pictures presented here with a quick wit, a rooted voice and a few playful surprises.

There are twenty-six words in Yiddish to describe
a paste of spreadable liver, but not one
for the catalog of places on your body
that I’m going to kiss while we’re floating.
None that translate to all things will pass,
they’ll never get more profound.

From prison to farm to city, this collection of stories takes you on a parallel journey to that of its teller with characters dissected along the way. The road novel reinvented through glimpes of america. All told in sepia stained images with bloodletting humor and a baking scented noir, these short fictions pursue the question of ‘what next’ served up with a dark tonic realism.
Shane Jimenéz’s stories are brief, sometimes in the way that car wrecks are brief…[he] has a soft touch for brilliant, sharp, sideways stories.

I want to count backwards from one thousand and have you stand again before me, my hand working across your face going from red to white. I want to see only from behind, and from this view see only my back.
