Caitlin Flanagan's name written across a stack of magazines

Hi there!

I’m so glad you’re here.

I wrote my first essay in 1968, and it consisted of one sentence and a picture.
The sentence was “When I grow up I want to be a sex symbol like Raquel Welch.” Sadly, that desire was not fulfilled, but the pleasure of expressing myself in bursts of nonfiction prose stayed with me, and here we are.

On this website, I’ve arranged some of my favorite essays by subject.
I hope you’ll find something you like.
