Medium Hero and Other Stories


Medium Hero is Korby's first book. It features 23 stories culled from Korby's life on and off the road. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, Korby is clearly in love with the world, and has the gift of making readers see things his way.

"Korby Lenker's keen control of narrative voice is spot-on in each of these stories -- distinctive, disarming, entertaining, and completely convincing.”
- Tim O’Brien

“By chance, I saw Korby play music one night and knew I had to meet him. The stories in Medium Hero are just like his songs — clever and well-crafted, with a tendency to linger in your mind long after you’ve finished reading. Very entertaining!”
- Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple

“These stories straddle a border between an Everyman’s search for meaning and a highly specialized look at modern Americana…A quick, pleasurable set of short stories that track the emotional and intellectual struggle of several young men.”
- Kirkus Reviews
