Walt Whitman's Sole

On Sunday, West Virginia's Scott McClanahan was in town and reading at The Whistler. He put on a 20 plus minute performance that included two stories from his Stories II collection (Six Gallery Press), a magic trick, a traditional poem, and a crowd-assisted version of "The Long Black Veil". It was truly an event in its own right, and I thought I would share a sample with you. This story, "The Last Time I Stole Walt Whitman's Sole" is taken from Scott's second collection Stories II and that collection can be purchased here.
