"The first line of [Andrea's story "After Reading the News Story of a Woman Who Attempted to Carry Her Dead Baby onto an Airplane,"] presents a character, setting and situation with a rare and satisfying command of storytelling. Using perfect details balanced against rapid pacing, the voice of this writing has an air of stern and simple elegance...In the way that great stories open larger questions, within its brief timeframe this story questions culture and society, and how we are so quick and sure to judge the tragedies of others, yet with less capacity to examine the perils in our own judgments." - Eugenia Kim (author of The Calligrapher's Daughter).

"[Andrea's winning piece] 'Talking Trojans,' melds compression, humor, keen intelligence, and social awareness into a savory 300 words. The references to Roland Barthes and his fetishization of language, especially his Lover’s Discourse, is cunning and comical. Where is the virus? Perhaps it is in the lover’s 'discourse,' the language, however refined, which obscures the virulent spaces eroding between the words and all about us." - Harold Jaffe, editor-in-chief at Fiction International
