No nepotism required

Hey! Google Alerts emailed me an unexpected link to my nephew, Nick. Nick took a course in Peru last summer and he brought back a thoughtful, honest, and engrossing story about the trip titled An Open Window--and I'm very happy to report that I can say that as a reader and editor, not just as an uncle. You can read about what he discovered on a bus trip through wheat fields high in the Andes here.

By the way, Nick's an English major, who is graduating from VCU next month. I'd guess that my brother is ready to give up his long-term lease on the kid and given this sample of Nick's work, I think any magazine would be lucky to take over payments.
