Flyways
 

ISBN: 978-1-897235-77-5

Through a protracted series of vignettes, Devin Krukoff transforms Flyways into an interconnected, psychologically intense novel. Exploring the concept of "six degrees of separation", the work dramatizes people’s unseen connections to others while they encounter their own problems awaiting an impending snowstorm.

Each vignette opens with a sometimes poetic, sometimes scientific description of a specific bird carefully chosen to help establish details of the characters’ situations, providing a “bird’s eye view” of the human world.

With scenarios ranging from teenage pregnancy and skydiving psychotherapy, to S&M lust, Catholicism, and goose hunting, Flyways delves into the intricacies and implications of the Human Web, and proves that, whether we know it or not, we are all linked, and the results of our actions reach far beyond our limited perception, often impact upon one another's lives.
