Just wanted Mr Slouka to know how much I appreciate his non-fiction as well. As a high school English teacher, I have used his essay "A Year Later: Notes of America's Intimations of Mortality" regularly since 2002 as an approach to 9/11 with my students in New Jersey. Over a decade later, it still hits hard and smart.
