The Best People in the World

by Justin Tussing

An enigmatic, coming of age novel in which nostalgia has a tendency to take on a rosier glow: despite how bleak the situation. Pick this if you want to savour a slow, melancholy read.


We moaned and signed and groaned. There was very little, actually hardly enough for one, so the more we are, the more demonstrative we became. We narrated every bite. It was theatre and Shiloh enjoyed it so much that he gave his portion to us so that the praise could continue.
