New Issue: Miranda

No comments

Kate Haas, creative non-fiction editor, has released issue #19 of her 'zine.

Miranda.

In this issue:

The Clothes Off Her Back
- Vintage garments. So hip, right? Not when they’re maternity clothes. Your mother’s maternity clothes.

Rochambeau – A new town, a first job, a whole mess of uncertainty.

Frivolous – True confessions: I love the New York Times wedding announcements. And so does my nine-year-old boy.

The Tintin Effect
– how a series of classic comics can give a kid a very odd outlook on life.

The Passion – The good teachers had it. I did not.

Plus, the Motel of Lost Companions encounters a Ghost; lots more book reviews; Mama’s Stray Thoughts (featuring hipsters vs. hippies, the toddler love of sticks, just how well my son knows his mother, and an April Fool joke you really shouldn’t try). Also, things overheard in the blueberry field and an excellent recipe for challah.

$2 per issue. For ordering information, go to Miranda.
