Five Skies

Five Skies, written by American novelist and short story craftsman, Ron Carlson, has been chosen for Attleboro’s annual city-wide read.  “Five Skies is like one of those heartbreaking Raymond Carver stories in which a luckless character catches a glimpse of something better, a small moment of rightness about the world, and, instead of cheering us, this glimmer of hope makes us even more anxious—because we know it can’t possibly last”. (The New York Times)
