My personal essay “A Girl’s Guide to Sexual Purity” – about adolescence, sex, and faith – is in the LA Review of Books’ Quarterly Journal’s Fall 2014 issue, which is hitting shelves soon. You can pick up a copy via amazon.com, indiebound.com or b&n.com, or become a LARB member and receive the issue. I’m in there alongside of amazing company: Aimee Bender, Michelle Huneven, Mona Simpson, Daniel Handler… couldn’t ask for a more exciting lineup. Check it out!
Also, my story “The Husband Stitch” is now up at Granta! A special thank-you to Mark Mayer, Val Howlett, and Granta editor Yuka Igarashi for their indispensable feedback and thoughtful edits and advice. This story is better for their presence.
