Love Stories for Turbulent Times
Well, I'm stunned. I was crazy fortunate enough to place "Touch," a short memoir, in the 2014 Pushcart Prize Anthology, after it appeared in The Pinch. I never thought I'd see my work in such heady company, and now I've just found out that the Pushcart editors have selected that memoir to join 24 other prose pieces, all having to do with love, that they (as I understand it - I'm still figuring this out) selected from decades of Pushcart anthologies for a new anthology titled Love Stories for Turbulent Times. Could not feel more gratified or lucky; this piece is very important to me.
