Almost Flamboyant

In this episode of Serendipity, we celebrate the winners of the 2016 Sarah Lawrence College International Audio Fiction Awards. This episode features The Sarah Awards 1st place winner "Almost Flamboyant" by written by Rijn Collins and Lea Redfern.

A group of ravens is an unkindness. A gathering of rhinos is (appropriately) a crash. So what do you call a flock of flamingos? This story begins in a steamy back laneway in Melbourne, Australia. We are captivated by an unpredictable young woman, her unlikely new friend, and an unexpected connection to the music of Tom Waits.
