Life in a Box, a short story about the claustrophobia of cubicle life, was published last month in The Offbeat Literary Magazine. Unfortunately, The Offbeat is strictly a print magazine so there’s no online link. But I did perform an early version of the short story back in the day at Goodbye Blue Mondays with friend/jazz guitarist Chris Conly and his ever-changing trio. Amazing group of musicians. I just walked into the studio, riffed off the theme that was in my head while writing the story, and the band immediately started playing the tune on the spot.
Here’s the audio link to live performance of Life in a Box.
