Special Mention

I bought a copy of the 2006 Pushcart Prize anthology just to see my name in the back. (Thanks, Vicki, for the heads up on this.) My essay, “The Sound and the Worry,” which was published in Brain, Child received a special mention. It’s a thrill to see my name on the same page as Pico Iyer and Lee Smith, who were also cited.

Haven’t read the whole book yet, but I did, with some trepidation, read Ann Hood’s heartbreaking essay “Comfort,” about the death of her daughter. I met both daughter and writer when I attended Bread Loaf several years ago.
