I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in April of 2011. I had effectively sidestepped medical drama my entire life (I'm not counting a tonsillectomy at age 7 or the time a door slammed on my index finger and the top had to be reattached or even the time a...

August 26 is always a day that occasions me to fall into a reverie. Before the night of August 26, 1978 I was one person. After that night I changed and eventually everything in my life changed. That night had deep reverberations like a church bell whose echoes go on...

(1) Comments | Posted June 2, 2015 | 4:15 PM

Right before I called Amanda to do this interview, I had muted my television. There was a car commercial on the screen, using as it's background music an iconic pop song by an '80s artist whom, I was fairly sure, never dreamed he would someday be selling cars with his...
