The spotlight comes to rest this week on a vibrant, cheeky prose piece from one of our more recent issues, DB 16, Winter 2012. Click the link below to read “Introducing Colors That Men Can Say Out Loud” by Laura Jane Faulds.

“On the plate in front of her were two kinds of sushi roll: a Red Dragon, and a Green Dragon. She didn’t prefer either of them, but ate a slice of Green Dragon because she’d eaten a Red Dragon last.”

Laura Jane Faulds is a Toronto-based writer of French-Moroccan descent. She currently runs a blog called Strawberry Fields Whatever. Her favorite Beatles song is “Tomorrow Never Knows.”
