For the past couple of years, I’ve been working on a series of connected short stories concerning the expat crowd in Paris in the mid-twenties. It’s been a labor of love requiring lots of research and background reading. I’ve also been sending them out and I’m excited that the first one has just been published on CommuterLit.com.
The above image is taken from the full map, shown below. Each story will have its own map showing the points of interest from the story. This first one concerns friends Ezra Pound and Ernest Hemingway around the time Ezra’s wife Dorothy Shakespear-Pound gave birth to a baby boy, Omar. This is also about the time when Ezra started to go a little nuts–read the story for more details.
The Paris short stories will eventually be collected under the working title Lost Paris as a completed manuscript. Until that time, I hope to find homes for each one in literary magazines and fiction websites such as this one. Special thanks to Nancy Kay Clark, editor of CommuterLit, for her support of my work.
