The Wire | The Sarah Book



The Sarah Book | Radio Waves

Scott McClanahan's got a brand-spankin' new book out called The Sarah Book. You'd probably be a fool not to check it out. Here's a short excerpt:

When the guy who got Sarah pregnant came to get her at the clinic he was smiling. He was with a buddy and they were drinking out of a giant plastic cup. They were drunk and they wanted something to eat.

They wanted to go to Burger King. So they left and went to Burger King and Sarah ordered chicken fingers and tried not to feel nauseous. She dipped the chicken fingers in the chicken finger sauce and watched the sauce sticking to the chicken's breaded skin and she felt like a ghost watching herself and then she put it in her mouth and swallowed and it felt nice. They guy drove her all the way back to Beckley and no one said anything. So he dropped her off and no one said goodbye or I love you or I'm so sorry or what the fuck just happened or why is life so goddamn fucking weird?

Sarah thought about all the the things that happened in this life that didn't make any sense.

Sarah turned to the guy before he drove away and said, "Thanks for the Burger King."

The guy said, "Yep, you're welcome. Burger King is good."

And then he was gone.
