Last Saturday’s edition of the Chicago Tribune ran a review of Martin Preib’s The Wagon and Other Stories from the City. With most of its content gleaned from a recent interview with Preib, the review offers some interesting background on the experiences that have inspired his writing, including his work with the Chicago Police Department and in various other capacities within Chicago’s service industry.
You can read it read it online at the Printers Row blog (Preib is also scheduled to appear at the Printers Row Lit Fest June 12 and 13).
Also, read a story from the book: “Body Bags” and listen to Preib discussing his work on the Chicago Audio Works podcast.
