"Common Ground: Brenda Stevenson’s The Contested Murder of Latasha Harlins," LA Review of Books
"Betraying Gideon in Alpine, Texas," Al Jazeera America
On Labor Day I drove to Midland/Odessa on a reporter-type mission. I’d never been there before, and it does indeed smell like oil. Those weird rural/industrial zones make me want to listen to the Misfits at top volume, for some reason.
In case you were wondering: I’m finishing up a piece on borderland public defenders (featuring my justice crush, Liz Rogers) for Al Jazeera America. Also on the horizon: haunted hotels; the LA race riots. Life is exciting.
Tomorrow at 10 a.m. I’m interviewing Lannan writer Rebecca Curtis on KRTS, Marfa Public Radio. Listen here!
