Summer’s over! It’s freezing here in Vienna! To celebrate the arrival of fall (here we do it with Sturm; YUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMM), I have two
old new pieces to share.
The most recent is a remembrance of the late Dr. Oliver Sacks, the brilliant neurologist/writer, who passed away a few weeks ago. I was lucky enough to study with him at Columbia; here I write about how he called me “the girl who writes about pain,” for Guernica. (
Not exactly how a person generally wants to be known, but look, I’ll take it.)
Aaaaannnnnnnnd, on a wholly different tip, I wrote about what NOT to say to a pregnant woman (
or what everyone said to me for nine long months and drove me batshit crazy), for the Manifest-Station. Any of you relate?
Happy fall, all.
