My story “Commando” is featured in this week’s issue of Crack the Spine. “Commando” is a coming-of-age tale that examines a young woman’s fraught relationship with her body, her mother, and the world. I tried many points of view, many structural experiments, and what finally seemed to work was this combination of simultaneous removed narrative distance (neither character is named) and intimate perspective. Have a read and feel free to comment, either here or at CTS. I’d love to know what you think!
