Washington Writing Prize for Maximilian

Yesterday I won the Washington Writing Prize for Best Personal Essay for "From Mexico to Miramar or, Across the Lake of Oblivion" from the December 2006 issue of the Massachusetts Review. It's about a journey to the Emperor of Mexico's castle in Trieste , Italy, what I think of as a nonfiction novela about a fairytale. Read the whole enchilada here. And more about the Emperor of Mexico here. More anon.
