Penelope Moves In

by Hannah van Didden

Hannah van Didden tends to words, projects, children, and chickens in the second most isolated capital city in the world. She likes to think her shower voice is particularly suited to jazz; others in earshot may not agree. You will find other pieces of her in places such as Crannóg, Southerly, Hippocampus Magazine, Breach, Atticus Review, Southword Journal, and her blog, thirtyseven.

What surprising, fascinating stuff can you tell us about the origin, drafting, and/or final version of “Penelope Moves In”?

‘Penelope Moves In’ began as a procrastination, in response to a prompt on the Tin House blog. I imagine Penelope would have understood Grenouille better than most.
