    A Best American Essay notable essay



    An essay that I published in Boston Magazine last May, 
    “The Day My Mother Became a Stranger," was just named a "notable" Best American Essay for 2016 in this well-known annual anthology of "best" essays. It's quite an honor, even to be one of the many runners-up. Thank you Boston Magazine, especially my wonderful editors S.I. Rosenbaum, Carly Carioli and Matthew Reed Baker.
