ESSAYS

The Stranger: "The Famous (And Not-So-Famous) Writers I Met While Working at Hugo House"  

I don't name names. Only one of the writers holds a grudge. Time heals all wounds. 

Salon: "My Sexless Soulmate: When Men & Women Really Are Just Friends"

This essay isn't as basic as the title suggests. 

Gawker: "I Saw My Mother Seven Years Ago"

Nothing I've ever written has been read as much as this. Guess lots of people have mommy issues. 

The Rumpus: "I Wasn't the White Boy Everyone Thought I Was"

You never heard of a Puerto Rican with the last name McGuigan? 

Salon: "My Fantasies of Mass Murder"

Read this one just so you can see my second-grade school picture.
