I am the fiction columnist for LOTL Magazine, Australia.
Inspired by pop culture, advertisements in bus shelters, cliches, reality tv, 3-day benders and lack of sleep, overheard conversations on trains, double shot lattes with full-fat milk, vodka, messy break-ups, trouble with the law, curious straight girls and porn. Basically anything that is bad for me.

Alex, Thanks so much for taking the time to read and respond to Common Trade. I'm so glad it worked for you, and I look forward to reading your work.
Hearing Sedaris read is one of life's little pleasures.
