Julie Orringer, "When She is Old and I Am Famous" and Joe Meno, Children are the Only Ones Who Blush"

Read Julie Orringer's short story, "When She Is Old and I Am Famous." It is a first person story, two cousins, one, beautiful and the other, fat. It is humorous and sad. This story is included in the collection, How to Breathe Underwater, as well as in the anthology, The Paris Review: Book of People with Problems.

Taking a break today from "Woodie Hart."

Just received in the mail and read, Joe Meno's, short story, "Children are the Only Ones Who Blush" published by One Story. It's about twins who are unequal in talents and intelligence.
