My short story “Bolero” is now out in the spring issue of ZYZZYVA, available in a bookstore near you, and online. I’m quite excited about it, but I’ve hesitated to post it here for two reasons: First, it’s very different from the dance writing I do for the Chronicle, which attracts the bulk of my traffic here; second, it’s about sex. It’s not meant to be titillating, and I believe it to be instead rather tender and sad, but it is explicit.
If that offends you, please don’t read it; if it doesn’t, click here, or better yet, support the culture of literary magazines and buy a copy of ZYZZYVA from your neighborhood independent bookseller. And come to the San Francisco Main Library May 17th, which brings me to the reason I’ve finally posted this: I’ll be reading that Thursday, alongside other spring issue contributors, at 6:30 p.m. in the Book Bay just off Grove and Larkin Streets. Admission is free.
thoroughly enjoyed this, and have recommended it to many people, all of whom are buying a copy or have read it online-and have written back to me telling me how much they enjoyed it. good work.
