A while back, Meg Tuite invited me to join her in co-authoring a story for her excellent “Exquisite Quartet” series at Used Furniture. I dig Meg’s work and I love Used Furniture, so of course I dived right in! That story, “Scenes from an Open Marriage,” gave me the chance to write with Meg as well as Jordan Blum and Julie Innis, and it was terrific fun and (I think) turned into a damn fine story.


But gang, that’s just the beginning! Meg has wrangled an amazing group of other writers to join her in this series, including my friends Ben Tanzer, Dena Rash Guzman, and Misti Rainwater-Lites. And now you can read them all, in one place, the old-fashioned way: curled up on your couch with the scent of wood pulp and binding glue. So go buy the book and settle in. You’re in for some great stories.
