Cooper Renner, On Reading

"I used to be a public school librarian. Sometimes I would ask the students, 'Where is yesterday? Where is your own past?' And they would realize that it's only inside their heads. 'So are the books you read.' Reading is a way to take this one life--the only one you know for sure you have--and make it into hundreds or thousands of lives."

Cooper Renner's chapbook, Dr. Polidori's Sketchbook, appeared earlier this year from Mud Luscious Press. Other fictions are current or upcoming with New York Tyrant and The Anemone Sidecar. Visit his website here for more information.}
