Boston Globe Mention

Alex Beam reviews the “Killed!” anthology in today’s Boston Globe.

Beam mentions my 1997 essay “To Hell With Father’s Day”:

Another gem is Ted Rall’s scathing Father’s Day “tribute” to the man who abandoned him and his mother. After an attempted reconciliation, Rall’s father reneged on a promise to pay his son’s college tuition, just as the boy was packing his bags for Columbia. “This year on Father’s Day, I’m calling my real dad,” Rall writes. “I’m calling Mom.” The New York Times Magazine killed the essay. “I heard that it made some influential people on West Forty-Third Street feel `uncomfortable,’ ” Rall recounts.
