Literature-loving friends, check out the latest issue of the Kartika Review online. My story, “The Vortex: An Account of My Father’s Death in Two Parts” appears on p. 40. It contains a large vortex, my father’s corpse, Lean Cuisine in a Samsonite briefcase, identical twin funeral home guys, and the brief yet tense period in which I was the prime suspect in the potential murder of my father in rural Virgina. Could I make this shit up? No way, which is why it’s in the Creative Nonfiction section.
