I’m deeply honored to announce that my short fiction collection from BOA Editions, TO ASSUME A PLEASING SHAPE, has not only been translated into Spanish by the talented and brilliant Teresa Lanero, but also will be the first title published in 2018 by an independent publishing house in Madrid, Spain, Editorial Dos Bigotes. “Presentarse en Forma Grata” will be released on February 12th.

Editorial Dos Bigotes was founded in Madrid by Gonzalo Izquierdo Torres and Alberto Rodríguez. I want to express my immense thanks to both of them. I’m proud to be a new member of the ‘mustachioed club.’

My father, who spoke fluent Spanish and had book shelves full of Spanish authors and Spanish grammar books, would have been especially proud of this news. I wish he were here for me to give him one more title to add to his old bookshelf.

To celebrate this publication, I’ll reading from TO ASSUME A PLEASING SHAPE on Saturday, with poet Joanna Clapps Herman, at Cornelia St. Café, NYC, January 13, 2018, 5:45 – 7:45 pm.

And a huge thanks to Peter Conners and Frederick Courtright for all their help.
