Today, my novella “Especially Heinous: 272 Views of Law & Order SVU” went up at The American Reader’s website.
I’m completely obsessed with Law & Order SVU, but I have a complicated relationship with the show and the way it tries to hash out ideas about sexual violence in such a clumsy and problematic way. This story was an attempt to get at the WEIRD FEELINGS it gives me.
To date, this is the piece of fiction that I am most proud of having written. It’s long and strange and took me ages and ages to sell, but now it’s here and I’m so happy. Thank you to the wonderful folks at The American Reader for publishing it so beautifully.
So if you have as confused a relationship with SVU as I do – or if you just want to get lost for a while – check it out. (Just an FYI, you definitely do not have to be familiar with the show in any way to enjoy the story.)
