The Collagist, a monthly online magazine published by Dzanc Books, features an excerpt from Kino in its April issue:
At the Wintergarten, each person was fascinating, sophisticated, cosmopolitan, witty, and most of all, sexy. I laughed at the men’s one-liners and desperately wanted to touch the women’s silken dresses. I wanted to know them all, but even more than that, I wanted them to know me. After a couple of beers, I allowed myself to imagine that the applause was meant for me.
