in my posting--I've actually been spending time writing fiction!
But before I get too behind I want to draw your attention to Felicia Sullivan's new venture: Rocking the Green Life. It looks fabulous and timely for this toxic environment in which we all live.
Also more great reviews are in for Laila Lalami's Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits.
Remember to check into Jordan Rosenfeld's Word by Word to catch the latest in author interviews.
This past week I've read a back issue of Orchid; three back issues of The Georgia Review; a back issue of Calyx; Katherine Shonk's The Red Passport (excellent!); and Joan Didion's powerful memoir on grief, The Year of Magical Thinking.
This past month I'm delighted to have had my story "Bighead" accepted for publication (Summer 2006) by The Jabberwock Review and my story "Plunging Toward Rusalka" accepted for publication (Winter 2007!) in The MacGuffin.
I also have a short piece in the latest issue of Cranky available now for purchase.
Happy reading and writing to everyone!
