Double wow!! Just discovered that my husband Steve also got a Notable Essay in BEST AMERICAN ESSAYS this year, for his essay "The Broken One" in the print magazine CATAMARAN LITERARY READER!!! So exciting and well-deserved!
I learned this in a post by Eaton Hamilton that included a screenshot, who discovered their Notable in a post by Katie Gutierrez that included a screenshot. Strange how what Paul Crenshaw is calling the "whisper network" is unfolding this year. There's still no full list of Notables on Amazon or Google Books.
I love this particular essay of Steve's, and love CATAMARAN LITERARY READER also, a glossy Santa Cruz journal that is filled with gorgeous artwork and has the best editors in the world (Lisa McKenzie and Catherine Segurson).
Steve read from the essay last March at a spectacular event they put on at the Radius Gallery. Here's a photo from the reading, and the cover of the issue he appears in.
