Fiction. Joellyn—as judgmental as she is insecure—tells her unborn daughter the story of her courtship with an unemployed, terribly-dressed man named Zachary. The novella is a romantic comedy—if romantic comedies were dark and screwed up and no one got exactly what they wanted.
Edan Lepucki is a staff writer at The Millions, and her short fiction has been published in McSweeney's and Narrative Magazine, among others. Her first novel, California, will be published by Little, Brown in July 2014.
