“The Edge of Normal” Featured on Longreads

A few weeks ago Longreads picked up my story on the lack of women in chess, which led to the article appearing in the New York Times Now app.  Since this was my first foray into combining personal essay with heavy reporting, this was pretty exciting.

So I was thrilled when they also ran an excerpt of my Kindle Single, THE EDGE OF NORMAL, last week.  I’ve been a fan of Longreads for a while now (and if you haven’t read them you should check them out – they find terrific stories from all corners of the web) so it was a mini dream come true to see my e-book on there.

The excerpt is titled In the Grand Scheme of Things.
