I have a new story, “Dead Turtle,” in the summer issue (just out now in November) of Michigan Quarterly Review. Yes, it is about a dead turtle. This is a print journal — order it (it’s amazing!) or seek it out in the periodicals room of the savviest college libraries.

I have a new story (a memoir/short story hybrid) called “Other Types of Poison” in the July issue of Harper’s Magazine. (Part is available online, though most is behind a pay wall.) The story is complicated — not just in the telling, but in the creation as well — and I break some of it down, nervously, on The Nervous Breakdown in an interview with Davis Schneiderman. The interview includes more historical detail about my grandparents (the subjects of the story), as well as photographs of both of them, and of me as a chubby baby and scrawny kid.
