Review: “Future Cities Is Bright” by Lindsay Lelivelt
It seemed fitting that I read through The Tangential’s first foray into published print while riding shotgun along the bleak highways of North Dakota. Desolate and dying dystopias filled much of the book’s pages, with little bits of hope and happiness scattered in and out of each piece.
Future Cities—which features short pieces of fiction by local literati Becky Lang, Jay Gabler, Heidi Schatz,John Jodzio, and more (like not-so-local-Portable.tv’sKat George)—is a collection of little glimpses into possibilities for the future. Each piece is unique to itself, but each fits well smooshed together under the giant umbrella of Future Cities without screaming at you “THE FUTURE IS NOW.”
