about art, culture, religion, romance, ricotta, my twisted past, my fantasy future, and the zany characters that roam through my brain. My tales have appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Guardian, Salon and many other publications, and on stage and screen. My memoir WHITE WALLS will be published by NAL/Penguin.
