We’re In America Now
Published Stories

Several stories from my memoir, We’re in America Now, Holy Cow! Press, were previously published separately in diverse literary journals. They are listed here and can now be read, with lots of additional material, in the new book. 

One of the stories, “Meine Cousine Aaltje,” has been translated and can be read in German by clicking on the title.

Although the book is available at Amazon.com, I recommend patronizing your local independent bookstore whenever possible.
