I suppose you could call elements of Unaccompanied Minors “noir.” In any case, the best thing about reading at a noir-themed event was that the audience was prepared for a night of murder, mayhem, and seedy darkness. So I got to read from “Sin Alley,” the Costa Rica house of prostitution story. “Sin Alley” even seemed sweet in the context of the event! I mean, there is crime and bad behavior…but there is also love.

While listening to the other readers, I got to share a table with this fab posse of Emerson creative writing students.IMG_1566
