To Boldly Go Where No Kitsch Has Gone Before

Kirk in Command

Ted found this while clipping coupons. I believe my jaw actually dropped when he showed it to me.

I’m a Grown-Up Now

I buy CDs that I heard on NPR.

I laugh at New Yorker cartoons.

I just purchased a swimsuit from Lands’ End.

An Interview with Jessica Berger Gross, the Editor of About What Was Lost

Almost 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. I didn’t know this until I had a miscarriage of my own. I was surprised to learn that it’s so common, since women almost never talk about it. I wasn’t able to find anything much written on the subject, either. I can’t say that the cultural silence surrounding miscarriage made the experience worse—I don’t know if anything could have made it worse—but it certainly didn’t make it any easier.

About What Was LostThe new anthology, About What Was Lost: Twenty Writers on Miscarriage, Healing, and Hope, is a much-needed addition to the literature of mourning. I contributed an essay, and I recently interviewed the collection’s editor, Jessica Berger Gross, for Literary Mama. We talked about loss, the publishing process, and what it’s like to edit a famous author.
