I even describe the details of her ribbon, releasing an extra flood of shame.

“The Husband Stitch” by Carmen Maria Machado. I clicked onto this story by accident, started reading it away, couldn’t put it down and promptly forgot what the hell I was doing in the first place.  It’s bold, it’s intimate, it’s… Continue Reading →
