Indiana University Press, who’s publishing my debut story collection, has posted an excerpt over at Scribd. It’s the title story?or, rather, the first part of the title story, which is told throughout the book in three parts. They’re all autobiographicalish, this one perhaps the most, in that I did, indeed, finish the Friday New York Times crossword for the first time on the day of my maternal grandmother’s funeral.
For those so excited for IYNMIBOT that this excerpt just isn’t enough, stay tuned to this blog, where once a week for the 9 weeks leading up to the June 1 pub date, I’ll be posting prequels of each story.
Because people are all about prequels, probably.
