“It was not a likely time for stories but some of us wanted to hear stories,” writes Lisa Fishman in her debut collection of short fiction. Entwining an exacting attention to language and impression with seemingly plainspoken narrative, the 40 stories of World Naked Bike Ride often achieve the cadence of old-world fable, drawing the reader across porous boundaries—between people, times, places, selves, and even between reality and unreality.
