Some time ago, I wrote a short story called “The Architects” for a creative writing class. Inspired by Albert Camus’ “La femme adultere” (“The Adulterous Wife”) and some articles I’d read about Chinese “ghost cities,” cities built rapidly in the last couple of decades to bring China into the modern era. Many of these cities, built far in the countryside away from the jobs in the pre-existing urban areas, are now empty, leaving intriguing story possibilities.

I’m proud to say that the story has been published in U.S.-1, the local Princeton newspaper, (and one of the only newspapers to be graced by the name of a highway), as part of their 2015 Summer Fiction Issue. You can read the story here.
