New Wave Young Godard

Maybe it’s because I just watched Breathless that this story by Mike Young seems like it should be starring Godard.

Mike Young recently accepted something I submitted to NOO Journal. In his email he said something I’m quoting because I think it’s hilarious and observant and is how I would like to describe his linked story:

There is something about the kind of funny that’s being written right now. It’s very careful, but if someone were to come up to it and say “I want to throw you away,” this kind of funny would agree. I like that quality. Pre-apocolypse Kenneth Koch or something.
