The Second Most Dangerous Job in America - Steve Himmer This was so great. A lot of Steve's writing is about nature and our relationship with the environment, so it was really delightful to read this story, which takes place in about as urban a location as you can get: a sad-ass convenience store in the middle of the night. Steve's writing here is really loose and fun, but he still describes these bizarro, odd-ball interactions with the weirdos who tend to haunt a convenience store at 3 am with a really insightful & thrilling clarity. It's a novella, a quick read, but it's packed with memorable scenes, both hilarious and depressing. 100% recommended.
