Electric Literature's sixth anthology travels highways, the waters of New York's harbors, and the grooves of a burned out LP. In Matt Sumell's -OK,- a son visits his stubbornly suicidal father at his flea infested home.In -Where We Missed Was Everywhere,- by Mary Otis, a brother and sister seek refuge from a funeral in a Beach Boys classic. The siblings in Marc Basch's -Three- react to one brother's dealings with a kid bully they encounter on a back country road. The subjects of a starvation experiment in Steve Edward's -Daily Bread- find their worlds reduced to the size of their stomachs. And the anthology's final story, -The Reader- by Nathan Englander, chronicles a discouraged author haunted by his one remaining reader.
