I Know You Haven't Heard From Me This Summer
and other Jennifer Love Hewitt vehicles that never made it to the screen
Hello old friends- I’ve been taking a break to work on some time sensitive projects that are not to do with the new album: a theatrical project, a tv project, and a writing project. I won’t say more, for fear of spoiling intrigue and contractual good faith.
Wanted to drop in and send out a link to an essay on diaspora, family history and memory I recently wrote for The Georgia Review’s Spring 2022 SoPoCo Issue. (“SoPoCo” is for Southern Post Colonial.)
The journal’s editors reached out to see if I would be interested in contributing a piece. I certainly was, and said editors certainly helped me a great deal. It was a deeply intense exercise to get through and I am glad to send greetings from the other side. I also enjoyed working on some parts of it! :)
Sending my best in remarkably surreal times,
What a lovely and searing essay. It sings and stings in the best way -- thank you for writing and for sharing it with us!
“ Sweet memories are not about accuracy, they are about safe harbor. You keep them well maintained and embellished as needed so you can steal away from time to time.”
So lovely. Thank you for it.
And for all of it.
