Nathan Englander’s Lonesome Drive


Announcing the latest addition to our Single Sentence Animation series. Artist Drew Christie brings to life a sentence from Nathan Englander’s new story, “The Reader,” available in Electric Literature no. 6.

The Sentence: “And with all those headlights floating divided in his rearview mirror, Author never can tell which belong to his reader, which pair is his beacon, a North Star, split, cast back, guiding him on.”

Electric Literature no. 6 features stories by Nathan Englander, Mary Otis, Steve Edwards, Marc Basch, and Matt Sumell. Paperback and digital copies are available on our brand new store page. Want more Single Sentence Animations? You can find them here.
