Another Country

I hope you might check out my newest short story, "Another Country," which is a contemporary Appalachian retelling of James Joyce's "The Dead", which was just published in the latest issue of Blackbird.  And let me know what you think.

This is as beautiful as all of your other writing. Thank you for putting into words all that we can feel but not name.
Simply beautiful, in a poignant way that only very special writers can take you to another place. Pat Conroy died last night, and I've spent the whole day remembering another writer's characters, places and feelings that I seem to I know better than ones around me. Thanks for reminding me that such inexplicable times can happen again. I've never lived in Kentucky or South Carolina or 18th century England, but certain individuals were put on this planet to make me think I have, if only for a moment. Thanks for being one of those precious and gifted voices...
