This summer’s issue of Ecotone features my story, “A Beautiful Song, Very Melancholy and Very Old.” It’s about a fly swatting competition in my hometown of Toronto in 1912–a competition that really happened (there’s your champion, above, with her fly traps). Some interesting info on the competition here.
