Tony Press

Old County 14

He’d had another of his nights and
was driving back home when he thought
he hit something but didn’t stop, of course,
because, well, you know Jake,

but the next day he told me “I think I hit
one of your sheep” and I said “it wasn’t a sheep,
it was my mailbox.”

Tony Press is inordinately proud of his story collection Crossing the Lines {Big Table, 2016}.
