I write fiction.
I've always liked to write but I didn't think of writing fiction until the turn of the century. I took my first class at UCLA Extension in 2000 and ... I like it!
I'm currently enamored with Edward P. Jones after reading his collection LOST IN THE CITY. I'm about to start his Pulitzer Prize novel, THE KNOWN WORLD. I have mad love for Junot Diaz's THE BRIEF WONDROUS LIFE OF OSCAR WAO and his collection DROWN; JESUS' SON by Denis Johnson, all of Lorrie Moore's collections. I heart Deborah Eisenberg too, with special love for her story "Some Other, Better Otto", Antonya Nelson, oh lots and lots of stuff.
Hi Carol! I came upon "Sage" in my weekly F. email and so glad I did! Otherwise, I'm not here much.
Hey there! Forgot to re-follow you when I re-joined this place. Thanks for the kind comment on my story. How about you post something now?
Howdy! but no Bozo?
oh , ok, well, i just read the dog & girl story, yeah, so, ok, now--well, wow. ok? jimmy. ok, and the answer is NO, check, but still, it's a hell of a story. even so. i mean, the story, it is good. tee hee. oh, my. wheeeeee
hey alicia, hi, whoa! hey---dogs & women, you got anything for us? send us something.
The Known World is breathtaking. I hope you've read it by now and that you liked it.
Have you ever read "Nilda" by Junot Diaz. I think it is amazing.
Your story "At the Bar" was great too. It makes me want to go and have a drink with you and make up stuff about everybody we see there.
I'd rather you'd come up here to drink though. I'm sure the drinks in LA cost way too much. Come to Erie and we'll get loaded for cheap.
I love that story "Some Other, Better Otto"--one of my favorites. I think I read it first in a BASS, maybe?
Thanks for the invite--where would I be in the literary world without you?
I'm checking this place out. Pretty cool!
Write us something, Alicia. (Or post us something!)
1910, yes! I'm almost 100.
Yay! Glad you are here. :)
