Lucky Streak

My latest cover for a book of short stories –

 lucky final

The stories in Christopher Iovenko’s striking literary debut Lucky Streak vary widely in topic and setting, but together they chart a modern landscape of alienation and deprivation, both spiritual and physical. Whether following a teenager literally trapped in his house by an abusive stepfather, a homeless man who tries to make a living as a ventriloquist, or a professional gambler who takes his young daughter to Las Vegas to get his luck back, the stories radiate the power of lost dreams and frustrated desires. Humor palliates the dark themes, and the stories resolve themselves through redemption and revelation.
