Festival of Light

We were in Mumbai, India shooting for Vanity Fair. We were in unbearable heat all day and decided to visit the beach for some fresh air. The Festival of Lights (Diwali) was in full swing and thousands of people were walking the sand.

Vico LaCava / Closure
Vico does things for the story. This was good that one time, when she walked the red carpet in sparkly stilettos with her ten closest friends to the premier of her first feature film. It was not so good that other time, when she walked alone down the concrete corridor of cell block 3 in a dirty peacoat and dripping mascara.

Natalie McNabb / Only Seventeen
Lives and writes in Washington State. She loves the color red – red dragonflies resting on bamboo stakes, red wine in her glass, red flip-flops on her red-toe-nailed feet – and words that caress, tickle, irritate, or beat against her soul. Her writing appears in W. W. Norton and Company’s HINT FICTION, as well as various literary publications, and it has been shortlisted for The Micro Award, Glass Woman Prize, and Fish Short Story Competition. Please visit her at
