A few updates and new pieces to read —
2. I’ve got a new essay in this week’s Glimmer Train bulletin, on Narrative Arc in the Novel.
3. The Huffington Post has named “The Solidarity of Fat Girls” one of its 12 super short stories you can read in a flash.
4. The Kenyon Review has announced its short fiction contest winners, chosen (and commented on!) by one of my all-time favorite authors, Ann Patchett. My story, “Black Harness,” is forthcoming this winter.
