Among other things, Susan Lanier is a hustler baby, and she just wants you to know: its not where you been, but where you ’bout to go. That is fitting because Susan Lanier is going places. Fresh off a delightfully creative chap book Felicia Sassafrass is Fiction, it was just announced that her debut short story collection, The Game We Play, is coming out from Curbside Splendor in September, 2014.
Susan and I meandered through the chilly Chicago spring, cruising central loop watering holes before ending at her local option, The Innertown Pub, where we enjoyed shots of various colors and cheap pints of PBR.
