the last book I ever read (Phil Klay's Redeployment, excerpt eight)

from 2014 National Book Award Winner for Fiction Redeployment by Phil Klay:

I want to smoke a cigarette. I’ve got a pack in my pocket, my last from a carton I picked up visiting friends in the Carolinas. In this city, smoking’ll kill your bank account way before it kills your lungs.
