Connotation Press publishes my Creative Nonfiction piece “The Newspaper Shop”

Connotation Press, an online magazine, selected a personal essay of mine, concerning a time in the early eighties when I worked in a magazine shop. It’s under their creative nonfiction column this month.

This piece will find itself into my personal essay/creative nonfiction collection, “Intimate Details & Bodily Functions” which is 80% done, but will probably only see the publishing light of day in 2012.

Thanks for your interest. — Vincent

    I don’t remember you having this job back in the days of our air mail correspondence. Perfect one though for gathering fodder for your stories. I wonder if guys still leaf through the Playboys in newspaper shops. There is so much of that on line. These short pieces are interesting, like the Dorothy Parker slice-of-life stories of yore.

    Wow, I absoluetly loved that story. You really nail all those nationalities and quirky individuals. Snifflers, yikes.
    I don’t know if you intended it to be funny, but because everything is described with meticulous dry precision – even the wet noises, it becomes absolutely hilarious. To me, that is. But people never laugh when I tell a joke and roll on the floor when I’m dead serious, so it might be me… Anyway, this was a lovely read. Thx!
