Love Dorothea Tanning’s paintings, particularly her surreal “Portrait de famille,” the subject of my ekphrastic microfiction “Head of the Household.” So excited to publish "Head of the Household" in COTTON XENOMORPH, a magazine I’ve admired forever, and that has published lots of my favorite writers. Big thanks to editors Chloe N. Clark, Teo Mungaray, and Hannah Cohen. I hadn't noticed how appropriate this was for Father's Day until they pointed it out!
And I hadn't noticed that Jill Talbot also referenced a Dorothea Tanning painting in her essay in THE RUPTURE this week until she pointed it out in her response to mine. That painting ("Eine Kleine Nachtmusik") is really cool too, and I love Jill's essay.
