Preib talks about his terrific new collection, The Wagon and Other Stories From the City. In the title piece, Preib details his work on the vehicle the Chicago Police Department uses to pick up dead bodies. It seems incongruous to describe such a gut-wrenching story as gorgeous, but gorgeous it is; Preib's musings on the recently, often ignominiously departed are particularly affecting, with flashes of morbid humor for relief.
