This PDF Chapbook: Matthew Salesses

I'm pleased to introduce We Will Take What We Can Get by Matthew Salesses. It is a funny and personal story about a man’s relationship with his fiancée and with his writing.

Salesses calls this “up-to-the-minute nonfiction.”

Told in 65 short sections, the story is about the writing of a story about a spate of bad luck, and how the writing plays a role and helps the writer adjust.

Salesses’s work is published in Glimmer Train, Hobart and many other journals. He is the fiction editor for Redivider.

Now if I read and enjoy this and don't pay, should I feel badly? Man, technology is freaking me out.

Heck no! I much prefer people read and enjoy it and print it themselves than order one and pay $4. I get all stressed about whether I'll have enough ink and if my endpaper is cool enough.

Thanks for asking.
