This is significant

This is my copy of a new book that features a piece of fiction I wrote. The book is called Significant Objects. It's co-edited by Rob Walker and Joshua Glenn, and it features work by Jonathan Lethem, Curtis Sittenfeld, Neil LaBute, Sheila Heti, Kurt Anderson, Ben Greenman, Lydia Millet, and William Gibson.

Here's how it worked, from the Significant Objects Tumblr:
The project auctioned off thrift-store objects via eBay; for item descriptions, short stories purpose-written by over 200 contributing writers ... were substituted.
The objects, purchased for $1.25 apiece on average, sold for nearly $8,000.00 in total. (Proceeds were distributed to the contributors, and to nonprofit creative writing organizations.)
The story I wrote for it is about a necking team.
