These are but a few of the storylines in Andrew McNabb's ethereal debut story collection, The Body of This.With award-winning stories previously published in such esteemed and diverse literary venues as The Missouri Review and Not Safe, But Good (Thomas Nelson,) The Body of This is an exploration of beginnings and endings, of architecture, the human body and what comes next.
