“Miss Michael in the Mirror,” a true story I wrote for my blog, will be included in Fourteen Hills, the literary journal published by San Francisco State University. I’ll read from “Miss Michael” at the launch for the journal’s latest issue, along with four other writers. The event is free; however if you don’t fork out for a drink everyone will think you’re tacky, and I’ll pretend like I don’t know you.
Oh who am I kidding? I’d do anything for seven minutes of adoration. Come on down. Get cultured. Meet the Manly Fireplug.
“Beautifully designed, impeccably edited, Fourteen Hills in one of those handful of literary journals doing the important work of keeping American writing alive and new” –George Saunders
