Mister Jackson

March 24, 2016 Ginger and Pickles, in their village shop.

by Sallie Bingham

A bout of the winter miseries—not ‘flu, thank God—has laid me low for a few days. Seeking comfort, I found myself turning to the books of my childhood, especially the delicious, watercolor illustrated “little books” by that British genius, Beatrix Potter. Her masterpiece, to my mind, is The Tale of Mr. Tod in which she wrote, not for the first time, of a foxy gentleman who was not “nice.” It’s a terrifying story that ends in a bloody battle between the fox and an equally obnoxious badger; Potter recognized that children rather enjoy being scared.

Doris will be my fourteenth published work, but now I’m once more a raw upstart, a woman daring to intrude into the magic kingdom of creativity, where there are no dirty socks on the floor, no sinks full of food-caked dishes. There is only the terrifying other of the empty page; I write my first drafts by hand, with an ink pen that inevitably leaks, staining my right middle finger. When I see that stain in the midst of other activities and preoccupations, I know I have begun.

You call that a compliment?

March 18, 2016

By Nosheen Hotaki

Language. It is language through which we can articulate our love, convey our gratitude, voice our anger, and exchange ideas. Language in its most unique form is the virtue that has made homosapiens suitable for survival. Yet, language has the power to hurt us more than any form of physical violence.

I came to the United States in the fall of 2012 to attend a prestigious boarding school in New England. For the past four years, I have been referred to as “exotic,” time and time again. I have been stopped on the street on my way to work, having people inquire my ethnicity, saying that, “there is no way you are American,” because “ you are too exotic.” My friends’ parents have referred to me as “the exotic middle-eastern princess.” In an attempt to adulate me, men have previously said, “You are not the blonde and normal beautiful. You are the exotic beautiful that makes me drool.”
