I'm so glad you enjoyed the teen perspectives, though, and there is a good chance my future work will feature young characters too. Teenagers are fascinating to me for that exact reason. Thanks so much for reading, Donna!(less)

My favorites are Leslie Jamison's The Empathy Exams, or anything by Maggie Nelson (I love The Argonauts). I also just read Sarah Gerard's new essay collection, Sunshine State, which manages a wonderful combination of journalism and memoir. Online, I've been following Ashley Ford and Jia Tolentino. (less)

Danya’s Recent Updates

“Nostalgia is my favorite emotion. It's like, you think you know how to deal with the passage of time, but nostalgia will prove you wrong. You'll press your face into an old sweatshirt, or you'll look at a familiar shade of paint on a front door, and you'll be reminded of all the time that got away from you. If you could live it all again, you'd take a long moment to look around, to examine knees against knees. Nostalgia puts you in this dangerous re-creation of something you can never have again. It's ruthless, and for the most part, inaccurate.”
Danya Kukafka, Girl in Snow

“It's almost funny: you think you matter to someone. They're the center of your universe, the sun you revolve around. You'd give anything for their details. You inch closer, closer, with tentative steps. You can walk as far as you want, but it won't matter. You are not even on their map.”

“On his wedding night, Russ thought of Lee Whitley in the way you think of someone dead. Fondly, too fondly, until absence takes this fondness and multiplies it, stretching until it becomes something invasive. Until it swallows you whole.”
Danya Kukafka, Girl in Snow
