Props to 7X7 Magazine for including me on their Spring Reads: 7 New Books by Bay Area Authors to Read Right Now.
Our list isn't complete without a short story collection—and Peg Alford Pursell's is piercing. With vivid characters and striking situations of loss and longing, this collection of lyrical prose is bound to sucker-punch you right in the soul. Yes, it hurts—but it's also dazzling, beautiful, and will give you those shimmery post-read chills.
Meanwhile I had a blast reading at the Make Out Room in San Francisco with James Warner's InsideStoryTime last night.
