Synopsis

Sonny Paine, Issue Two Also Known as Sonny Applies to College by Students of New York City High School

Sonny Paine, named after a New York homeless man who gained notoriety (and a New York Times profile) begging on the F train, returns with a new issue of student-written stories and nonfiction. Based on their work in 826NYC s famous writing lab, the students take on a bracingly wide range of topics, cracking wise on everything from Coney Island to lighting bugs to a horrible accident involving fireworks on the Gowanus Canal. Typical of the entries is Dylan Suher s compelling short story IED. Set during the whole winter of the great bomb, this ambitious story offers fresh, grimly comic insights into block-bred racism, teenage angst, and the urban alienations peculiar to a post-9/11 world. At once sharp, irreverent, and heartfelt, Sonny Paine, Issue Two edited, designed, and created entirely by high school students presents a new generation of literary lights.
