“Selfless Devotion”, THIS ARTICLE WAS SELECTED for THE PARIS REVIEW, and was a special featured issue. It also acquired press as the founder of LiisBeth: a feminist business magazine, Vicki Saunders, championed the piece, had her editors review and send it to their readership: “Believe me; it’s worth the time to read.”
This best-of-the-year anthology was published fall 2017 by Unnamed Press and includes contributing writers from the New Yorker, the Atlantic, the New York Times, Wired, and Pacific Standard. “What Future is an important contribution, encouraging dialogue and discussion that can help us begin to come to terms with what, in many way, is a troubling future, but one that we must nevertheless seek to influence.” Info.
