Indie favorite Elephant Rock Books launches this anthology of personal essays culled from the archives of 2nd Story, a Chicago-based collective of story-makers.

About the Book:

Briefly Knocked Unconscious by a Low-Flying Duck: Stories from Second Street brings the vibrant oral tradition to the page through the work of 2nd Story, a Chicago-based collective of story-makers and story-lovers working to build community through storytelling. 2nd Story hosts monthly events that fuse page, stage, and sound to deliver a unique live literary/theatrical experience. This collection puts those hilarious and heart-wrenching stories right onto your hands.

“Funny, compelling, intimate, raw, and always surprising, Briefly Knocked Unconscious by a Low-Flying Duck is storytelling at its absolute best. from porn queens to tooth fairies, blood clots to sobriety, prepare to be awestruck, dumbstruck, thunderstruck, and perhaps struck by a low-flying fowl.” —Dinty W. Moore, author of The Mindful Writer

About 2nd Story:

Since 2002, 2nd Story has hosted story-sharing performances and workshop/classes that fuse page, stage, and sound to deliver a unique live literary/theatrical experience. The stories range from the serious to the silly and can at once provoke and entertain. Each story is combined with musical accompaniment to enhance the spoken story and the pregnant pause. A typical show consists of (or three or five) stories dispersed throughout the evening like courses in a meal. For more information on the collective, and the performance season, visit 2ndstory.com.
