If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
War. I'm the daughter of a Vietnam veteran and the granddaughter of a World War II hump pilot. It was inevitable that I would go out for a big adventure after college and run into a war. My memoir, BLACK ELEPHANTS, is a Gulf War love story coming out in Fall, 2011.
Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
The New Yorker, The New York Times, and The Best American Essays anthologies.
In bed I like to read:
A book, the old-school kind with paper pages.
My favorite story of all time is:
Tobias Wolff's short story, "Class Picture." It's about honesty and adventure, the things I cherish.
Right now, I'm reading:
Denis Johnson's novel, Jesus' Son.
