It’s the end of the world as we know it: Avem-14 has taken the world by storm, infecting people and turning them into feathery, beaky, winged creatures.
This collection of fifteen interconnected short stories tracks the spread of the disease through snapshots of daily life. What would you do if you were quarantined on the other side of the world from your family? How would you react if you were trapped with an ex? And – most importantly – when will clubs finally open up and allow barhopping to happen again?
Written while the author was trapped alone in her own home for months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, “And I Feel Fine” explores the effects of mob mentality, cabin fever, and sheer boredom through poignant, thoughtful vignettes. KTLS also manages to weave in her signature dry wit while showcasing different voices, lifestyles, and personalities to tell one collective story from fifteen different points of view.
Change is the only constant we have in this world; it’s up to us to find a way to adapt, even if “adapting” means growing wings and learning to fly… literally.
