"Pleasure To Make Your Acquaintance" Distinguished in Best American Short Stories 2016

I was excited and proud to discover that "Pleasure To Make Your Acquaintance" is a distinguished story in Best American Short Stories 2016. It's been a crazy, hectic summer and to tell the truth it's been hard to carve out time to write between raising a toddler and making a living. Acknowledgements like this are a huge encouragement. Thank you Heidi Pitlor and Junot Diaz!

Thanks also to Crazyhorse for originally publishing this story in their Spring 2015 issue
