INTERESTED IN SHATTERING GLASS? Everything you need to know is right here. SNAPSHOT: Connor Coyne does not believe that the avant-garde is behind us. It is necessarily with us and before us, telling stories with virulent rhythm and insistent intensity. His writing, praised as "an emotional and aesthetic tour de force" and "not for the faint of heart" straddles the line between the gothic/noir/horror genres and literary experimentation.
