Apparently, there is another writer out there who shares my last name. More coincidentally, his name is Michael A. Tashjian. How strange. He has a story called “Of Women’s Wiles and Underwear,” or “Wiles and Underwear” for short, being published online at Eric’s Hysterics May 15th. Opening in the waiting room of a doctors’ office, it begins when a curious adolescent boy picks up a women’s magazine, an incident followed by a garage sale and a cute girl.
Even more bizarre than the story writer’s name, Michael A.’s style seems similar to mine–except for the fact that I would never write anything so vile as a story about underwear and wiles. Nevertheless, perhaps you’d like to read it when it appears on the site this Sunday.
