Short story forthcoming in Valparaiso Fiction Review

Posted on

I first drafted this story more than 10 years ago, during a break from revisions of Zinsky the Obscure. Jonesing for some U.S. history, I picked up all three Shelby Foote Civil War books from the public library. Something in those readings prompted me to research the life of the younger Lincoln, from the perspective of those who knew him before he was famous. I’ll say no more about the story for now, but I look forward to sharing more details about it when it appears in December in the Valparaiso Fiction Review.
