‘27,000 Breaths’ a top read for 2016.

I’ve loved all the feedback and thoughts many of you have shared around your own experiences of grief, after reading my essay “27,000 Breaths“. It’s about my father, about death, about Robin Williams & about how we make sense of our own fleeting, brief, gorgeous lives.

It means a lot to learn that the piece is one of Little Fiction/Big Truths most read stories of 2016. There are a lot of great pieces on their top 10 list–fiction and non-fiction galore–so why not check it out for some good holiday reads?

Thanks again to editors Troy Palmer and Amanda Leduc for taking this on.
