“Foreign Encounters” Anthology Now Available!

Foreign Encounters

Foreign Encounters, the newest anthology from Writers Abroad, is finally available on Lulu!

“An encounter can be a chance meeting, a planned get-together or even a confrontation. This collection of stories, non-fiction and poems features a variety of foreign encounters: with family, friends, lovers, animals, cultures, or just with one`s own prejudices and preconceptions.” ~Writers Abroad

All proceeds from the sale of Foreign Encounters will be donated to Books Abroad. By buying a copy, you’ll be helping Books Abroad supply textbooks for schoolchildren in need. You’ll also get to read my personal essay, Life with Mệ, about moving in with my Vietnamese grandmother-in-law.

If purchasing before Oct. 26, use coupon code JEKYLL for 20% off. To buy, just click the cover photo above.

Thanks to Susan Carey for the lovely blue cover!

  5. Hi Chris! My copy finally made its way to Italy and I am reading all the stories now. I really enjoyed yours and how nicely your portrayed life with your Vietnamese grandma-in-law. It’s very moving. I’ve only been to Viet Nam once, for a month-long holiday that I really enjoyed, but it was nice to travel back vicariously through your story. Look forward to reading more!

      Hi Kimberly, Glad you enjoyed the story. I really liked yours too, and I’m glad I discovered your blog through it. I haven’t yet been to Italy, but it’s high on the list of places to visit.
