“Cutthroat, For the Love of Words” in Hippocampus Magazine

“Book,” by Petr Kratochvil

For the past few months, I’ve been working in mama-bear cave land. I climbed out once or twice. And this is what happened. My latest piece for Hippocampus Magazine is about murderers and dictionaries (the really big ones), Shakespeare, nagging pebbles and shenanigans. I hope you’ll join me there.

  1. Ah, Lisa – so glad to have you and your words back with us, even for a moment. You and your tales have been sorely missed. I loved this piece – with its dictionary digging – who knew that a single word could have so many meanings. I have a tiny sliver of understanding as to how your stories find their voice – with a word and your favorite question – “what if?”

  2. Nina, Thank you for this and for your comment at Hippo. The cave is sometimes cozy and sometimes crazy — I am sure you have an inkling 🙂

  3. I have this to say: “YAY!”
    I hope that read as resounding. It is like a secret pleasure to read your work again- like a stolen moment, a sweet snatched from our girls’ Halloween baskets when they’re not looking…delicious. Xoxo
