My profile on Amy Hempel is out in the Chicago Tribune.
I started writing a second piece, a first person essay on my time with Amy, for this website, but then I thought I’d pitch it to a site with exponentially more readership. I contacted The Millions and sent them a draft. They liked it, so I’m finishing up my submission to them today. If you’re interested, email me at frank.tempone at gmail and I’ll let you know when it’s available.
Amy Hempel is a remarkable human being. If you have any other questions about my interview with her, I’m happy to speak with you.
