Thursday Fiction Corner: "The Tingling, Tangling Tango as 'tis Tripped at Coney Island," by Djuna Barnes

A Coney Island Reader

Welcome to the Thursday Fiction Corner, where we highlight some of the excellent fiction from our list and the lists of our distributed presses. This week, we are happy to present an excerpt from A Coney Island Reader: Through Dizzy Gates of Illusion, edited by Louis J. Parascandola and John Parascandola. A Coney Island Reader brings together over one hundred years of writing about Coney Island, from authors ranging from Walt Whitman to Katie Roiphe. In today’s post, we’ve excerpted a short piece originally published in the Eagle in 1913 by American modernist writer Djuna Barnes: “The Tingling, Tangling Tango as ’tis Tripped at Coney Island.”
