Today's short story by playwright, Kenneth Hanes, deals with the relatively universal pain of seeing aging loved ones losing their memories and their recognition. However, for the main character of this story, who is a transwoman, this loss is magnified, for not only does her embittered father no longer recognize her, he has lost any understanding at all of who and how she is. 

Today's story first appeared in The Massachusetts Review

Today we have two short stories from Jeff Musillo. They're each conversational, things you are overhearing or being directly told, or even confessed to. While each story centers on damaged men, one of them absurdly, hyperbolically so, they are each darkly funny.

Jeff is the author of The Ease of Access, Can You See That Sound, and Snapshot Americana. His new novella, The States is published by Civil Coping Mechanisms and is available this Friday (11/13/2015).  

 

Conversation topics: writing, Nickelodeon, TV, screenwriting, film, publishing, process, Brooklyn, Charles Bukowski, inspiration, learning, failure.
