Read Ben Fountain's short story, "Bouki and the Cocaine," published in his collection, Brief Encounters with Che Guevara. This story, originally published in Zoetrope: All-Story, portrays the complicated issues of the drug smuggling industry in Haiti, Colombia and the United States. Two Haitian fishermen want to rid their country of the scourge of the drug trade.
Ben Fountain will be reading and speaking at UNT mid-April.
