The novel-in-progress, The Sexual Lives of Missionaries. It’s been at the center of my daily work for five years. Here is a picture of the stacked-up pages:
The project I’m likeliest to complete next is a nonfiction book about Greg McCaw, my childhood pastor, who came out as a gay man and lost everything. You can see a preview of his story at The Rumpus.
Some other things I’ve been doing:
1. “The Question of Where We Begin,” an essay about point of entry, suicide, and the origin of the world, at Gulf Coast.
1a. Nick Bruno printed a limited edition (75 copies) letterpress chapbook (with woodcuts!) of my story “The Truth and All Its Ugly,” which originally appeared in Surreal South and Harper Perennial’s Fifty-Two Stories (you can read it here.)
2. New essays out the next few months in Arts & Letters, Sou’wester, and Cream City Review.
4. An ebook edition of my 2008 story collectionIn the Devil’s Territory will be available later this year from Dzanc/Consortium, for Kindle, Nook, SonyReader, etc. (!)
5. I’ll be doing readings this spring in Blacksburg, Virginia; Columbus, Ohio; Denton, Texas; and St. Louis, Missouri. Details here.
