Unsolicited Press Releases Chris Vola's "How To Find a Flock"


Missoula, MT, January 11, 2017 --(PR.com)-- A man decides to transform himself into a bird to escape his phone-wielding, formaldehyde-scented girlfriend. A professional clipboarder spends her days enduring the humiliation cast upon her by potential donors and her nights conjuring visions of the Appalachian Trail.

The stories in “How to Find a Flock” reveal characters and settings – both implicitly and explicitly connected – that explore the inherent difficulties and the unforeseen elation in forming connections – romantic, spiritual, economic – amidst a post-empire landscape that inevitably crumbles as it retreats further into its digital self. Fatally marred by the cynicism, anxiety, and selfishness inherent in their generation’s version of cultural currency, the mostly young and unhinged protagonists of these stories realize, sometimes too late, that even the briefest moments of genuine human touch are more potent than any keystroke or screen swipe. Featuring a prose that is variously biting, reflective, caustic, and exuberant, “How to Find a Flock” is a collection for anyone who has ever felt the crush of loneliness, the indifference of a blinking monitor, the cruelty of utter boredom and hopelessness, and the exhilaration of finally doing something to change it.

Chris Vola was born in Hartford, Connecticut and is the author of two novels. He lives and bartends in New York. Unsolicited Press plucked Vola's short story collection out of 2,000 submissions for its tenacity and must-read attitude.

Vola's “How to Find a Flock” can be purchased on Unsolicited Press's website or at any major retailer.

Unsolicited Press is a small literary press based off the West Coast.
