“The Nonfiction of Skin” published in Grist

Most happily, my essay The Nonfiction of Skin was published as a craft essay on Grist: A Journal of The Literary Arts this week.

Of the various things I could warn you about for this essay (length, the occasional mention of writing theory, a rather wandering approach), the most important, I think, is that this essay, as it’s title suggests, is about skin. Indeed, this essay lives up to its topic, delving into cultural taboos and medical curiosity alike. (Perhaps I am over selling the essay; consider this note a disclaimer of content rather than a promise of delivery).

I think I toe a line of propriety and possess at least some impulse towards discreteness, but, in any case, consider yourself warned. πŸ™‚
