“The Ninth of Av” in Crab Orchard Review

My contributors copies of Crab Orchard Review arrived in the mail while I was away at Writers in the Heartland. When I got home, it was exciting to see my name on the back with at least one other I recognized (poet Erika Meitner).  This story is excerpted from my novel, A USEFUL LIFE. Here’s hoping its publication will generate some interest in the novel.
