My short story “First Dive” is in the latest issue of The Dalhousie Review, published at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
This is one of my earliest works and is included in my collection Men and the Drink. It is the first part of a trilogy that revolves around a young female narrator over a period of three years. The second story, “Permanent,” was published in The Nashwaak Review, and the third, “Black Satin Pants,” is still looking for a home. I was close to retiring “First Dive” as it had been rejected eleven times, and I wondered if it was strong enough to stand alone without the rest of the trilogy.
Much thanks to the fine folks at The Dalhousie Review for accepting my story.
