Praise for "Jaded." 

Reading Jaded feels like you’re peeking through a keyhole, or reading someone else’s texts. A car crash of a flash collection that you cannot turn away from. Koewing’s prose is urgent, abrasive, and sexy; his characters naked, vulnerable, and devastating. It is a must read of contemporary literary fiction.
- Meagan Lucas, author of Songbirds and Stray Dogs

By turns tender and brutal, these stories consume the world the way we all do now—in short and
brilliant bursts. Jaded takes us from the kitchens of the French Quarter to the heights of Denver’s
construction cranes. This is fiction steeped in place and Koewing is a willing tour guide. No stranger to a Sazerac, he’s too good at making you stay for just one more.
-Greg Tebbano, finalist for the First Pages Prize and the Robert C. Jones Prize for Short Prose
