This week, to accompany A Christmas Serial part 2, a holiday story by Jody Brooks. I liked it from the moment I read it and I liked it even more after Jody told me it is *almost* a true story (awesome what we can do in fiction, isn’t it?)
Jody Brooks’ work has appeared or is forthcoming in DIAGRAM, Hobart, The Florida Review, The South Dakota Review, and The Southampton Review, among others. She has a degree in architecture from UC Berkeley and an MFA in fiction writing. A native of Southern California, Jody currently lives in Atlanta where she teaches at Georgia State University.
