Incredibly excited that my story, Still Life With Tampon, was selected for today's storychord.com issue! I'm especially thrilled because this is such an innovative online magazine--every other Monday, it publishes a new multimedia experience consisting of one new story, one new song, and one new image from emerging artists.
This week, my piece appears alongside work from two talented artists--a photograph by R.J. Caputo that captures the strangely hypnotic hallways I have known in the outer boroughs (where the story is set); and Flightless Bird, a song by Scott Barkan, which could not be a more perfect match for the antagonist of this story (will let you discover why for yourself!).
Thanks so much to guest editor, Erika Swyler, for putting us all together--it was an honor to work with her, and we are all happily awaiting the publication of her first novel, The Book of Speculation (St. Martin's Press, forthcoming winter 2015)! Check out her blog in the meantime, at erikaswyler.tumblr.com.
