My First Print Coverage!

One of my favorite writers, Curtis Sittenfeld, interviewed me about Ten Girls to Watch for the May issue of Glamour. Check it out! Page 231. I felt very fancy when I saw it in Duane Reade.

Your Stories: Sad Furniture

Sometimes when you’re young, despite your best intentions, your apartment is kind of sad. In Ten Girls to Watch, Dawn has a lot of cardboard furniture. I did too. Also bunkbeds. When I finally “upgraded,” it was to a terrible Ikea chair futon, which was broken and had to be propped up with suitcases, and even then, sometimes you’d shift in the night and the “bed” would collapse. See what I’m saying? Sad furniture.

I bet you had some too! Or maybe even have some STILL. I’d love to hear about it. As would the entire brother and sisterhood of sad furniture owners. Share your story in the comments sometime this week, and if you’re lucky, you just may get an early copy of the book (we’re drawing a winner from the comments!)
