Grain 43.1

The newest issue of Grain Magazine is out and includes my story, The Frog. Alex travels to Turkey with his girlfriend, Leyla, for a dreaded "meet the family" visit. It's 2013 and protests are about to erupt on the streets of Istanbul. There's food poisoning, a circumcision party, and a badly timed kiss.

Grain has helpfully compiled a list of places that carry their mag but you can also get your copy from them directly. I'm so proud of this story, an early excerpt of which was featured on Sarah Selecky's website. It was such a pleasure to write and found a home with Grain on the very first try. Yep…this is the only story I've written that has never had to circle the block several times.
