Next Letter in the Mail: Stassa Edwards


Our next Letter in the Mail comes from Stassa Edwards! Stassa writes to us about how after escaping Florida for Washington, DC, a temporary return turns into a permanent one. She wonders about what it means to be from someplace while spinning on the teacups at Disney World with her daughter, a rite of passage for all Floridians.

Stassa Edwards is a writer at Jezebel. In addition, she has also written for Cabinet Quarterly, Aeon, Lapham’s Quarterly, and The Awl. She is currently working on a book on the history of hysteria.
