I am writing a story for a national publication on the defining characteristics of GenX parenting. I'm still looking for interviewees, so if you have any interesting thoughts or observations on this issue, email me at kgranju-at-yahoo.com.

Be sure to pick up a copy of my good friend Spike Gillespie's wonderful new essay collection, Surrender (But Don't Give Yourself Away) And if you live near Austin, TX, you can go hear her read from the book tonight at Book People.

You can find out more about Spike and her work at her website.
