From the article:
“Suddenly I was just playing, moving less than before, hushing more quietly. When I looked down, Baby’s eyes were closed, lids shot through with purple vein. She was asleep.”

In addition to The Times, Torday’s fiction, essays, and criticism have appeared in Esquire Magazine, Five Chapters, Fifty-Two Stories, Harvard Review, Glimmer Train, and The Kenyon Review. A former editor at Esquire, Torday serves as a book review editor at The Kenyon Review. He is a member of the Editorial Board of Literary Imagination, and a consulting editor at Hunger Mountain.
