Kevin Killian, "Young Hank Williams"

A mother takes her son to a healer to cure the strange growth on his back.

(from Impossible Princess)

Presumably the kid is the young Hank Williams. Somehow he’s a month old but remembers the incident enough to narrate the tale of the healer’s fake-out methods and showmanship. Told in short sentences and fragments, and humorously implausible, this is one weird story. And it’s got a co-author? Derek McCormack wrote this four-pager with Killian. Not a normal scnaerio, and not a normal story, but it worked out fine.
