Matthew Di Paoli's short story "Quicksand" first appeared in issue thirty-nine of Neon. It's a dark little tale about a man who finds himself stuck in a patch of quicksand while on his way to the butcher. As the story progresses he sinks deeper and deeper, while the world around him continues apace - not even a visit from his parents or a new prospective love interest can save him from sinking. "Quicksand" was one of Neon's 2014 Pushcart Prize nominations.
Seven of the most provocative stories assembled in one book. Each is calculated to be more pleasing and provocative than the previous... culminating in a modern Emperor Jones.
Originally published in issue thirty-nine of Neon, this short story is now available as an individual eBook edition. Read more about it by searching for "Neon Literary Magazine, or visit Matthew by searching "Matthew Di Paoli".
