Holy moley you guys.
This came together so well. If you read it in this order– from the beginning of the week to the end of the week– it feels like a real literary journal with a structure and recurring imagery and everything– which was not even my original intention! Eat your dang heart out, Granta!
Thanks so much everybody.
