Chris Jones on Canada Parliament Shooting

esquire.com — Part of the shock of yesterday's shooting in Ottawa was that it seemed so unlike us.

Auburn Chautauqua Writers Symposium

esquire.com — An ancient oak tree stood behind the main house, and the dozen of us ducked under its branches on the walk back to the screen house after lunch on Saturday. We'd pulled from a giant, delicious pot of Brunswick stew, with sides of salad, cornbread, and big glasses of sweet tea.
