Odd Birds will be published by Wings Press, January 2019. If in a dream Cosimo Infante Cano found himself stranded in a strange American city far from the comforts of his apartment in Paris or his house
in Cuba, it would be the type of nightmare where he would awaken, grasping at the sheets, perspiring. And, there he stood on a bridge overlooking the banks of a narrow, winding river in a far-off American city, nearly
destitute and fully, terrifyingly wide-awake.
Wings Press who contracted the author to publish OOD BIRDS has exercised its contractual right to vacate the agreement. The reasons for this break are complex and has to do with the publisher’s ability to remain in business.
