Here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:
I met the writer of this essay once, after admiring her work for a while and even writing her a fan letter. (She sent a very sweet reply.) She stood in line in front of me in a feminist bookstore in Chicago, and I worked up the nerve to say hello. Her book, Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life, is what inspired my Alphabet series. I am very sad to hear about the news she shares in this Modern Love essay — one of the most beautiful and devastating things I’ve read in a long time: You May Want to Marry My Husband.
