Amy Hempel's work means everything to me, so I am beyond honored to learn that she has chosen one of my very short stories for inclusion in the anthology Best Small Fictions 2017. The book will come out in September and features so many outstanding writers, among them Carrie Cooperider, Rebecca Schiff, and the incredible Joy Williams (!). So much gratitude to series editor Tara L. Masih and to Sophie Rosenblum at NANO Fiction for the nomination.
