“You're Not My Son Anymore”: 3 Quarks Daily SemiFinalist


Give thanks to all the readers and Facebook friends who voted for “You're Not My Son Anymore”—a semifinalist in the 3QD Arts & Literature Prize 2010.
 
“You're Not My Son Anymore,” is one of those stories that I felt had to be written, for as James Baldwin in “An Open Letter to Angela Davis” wrote:  “If we know, then we must fight for your life as though it were our own—which it is—and render impassable with our bodies the corridor to the gas chamber. For, if they take you in the morning, they will be coming for us that night.”
