“Des Fils Un Peu Trop Distendus”

My story “Loose Strands” was written in response to a photograph by Henry Wessel in his 2012 collection Incidents: “Incidents 006,” now part of the collection of London’s Tate Gallery.

While the story’s first English-language publication is still ahead in the full collection A Dark Thread (Mack Books, forthcoming), a French translation—titled “Des Fils Un Peu Trop Distendus”—appears in a small advance version of the anthology, produced by Mack Books and the Artworkers Retirement Society in conjunction with an exhibition of Wessel’s work at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris. The exhibition, also titled A Dark Thread, opened June 5, 2019, and runs through August 25, and this first edition of the book also features stories by Ivy Pochoda and Alexander MacLeod.
