Marie-Helene Bertino’s debut story collection SAFE AS HOUSES will be published October 1st, 2012. She has worked as a diner waitress, a muralist, and a music writer. Currently, she works as a biographer of people with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). One hot summer night in August, she met herself at a crab joint (in her mind) near (the) Cape May, New Jersey (in her mind) where she taught herself how to use a mallet to extract the meatiest parts of the crab, and talked to herself about herself.
I admire how much plaid you are wearing.
How kind of you to say!
