Shannon Cram publishes flash prose: "Mastectomy: Instructions Before Surgery"


IAS faculty member Shannon Cram published a flash prose piece entitled "Mastectomy: Instructions Before Surgery" in the latest issue of Fugue (Issue 56).  This short creative nonfiction essay adopts the language of a how-to-guide, annotating the pre-operative instructions she received before her own mastectomy.  Cram's current book project, Exposure Scenario: Nuclear Life and the Politics of Impossibility, weaves personal stories together with ethnographic research about cleanup at Washington's Hanford Nuclear Reservation.
