  • “The Community Chorus” — A personal essay excerpted and revised from an unpublished novel manuscript, BUFFALO BRAIN, a counter-cultural coming-of-age story set in the relatively sane 1960s, long before anyone could have imagined “President Trump.”
  • “Cold War” — A personal essay based on my experiences living in Debrecen, Hungary, in 1988, when the Soviet Union still existed and its troops were still stationed there.
