A few years back, I wrote a short story, and a true story, about a chain-smoking old lady and her teenage chauffeur. I called it “The Ashtray.” Though I liked that story quite a bit, I had more difficulty selling it, I think, that any of my stories, and it was rejected at least 60 times before being accepted by Geist. You can still read it on their website, right here. It’s also in my most recent story collection, I Am Currently Working On a Novel.
