An ancient bit of memoir, first draft written an ungodly 25 years ago, will come out in Chaleur magazine this October. “Mouth Full of Plaster” is about those first sparks you feel when the possibility of romance appears, but at least as much about the relationship between a mother and daughter, the good friends who set up this bit of matchmaking.
The September issue of Chaleur looks pretty spiffy and features a selection of photos. Snow melt in a parking lot, they say, but at first (and second and third) glance the photos look more like a winter tour of Nevada, round about Eureka or Austin. http://www.chaleurmagazine.com
