Pangea author, Sarah Hilary, in Ilanot Review

Sarah Hilary’s short story, Forty-eight faces, is published in the new edition of the Ilanot Review:

This face, I dunno, it’s kinda like Mr. Ed’s. I remember back in sixth grade, my pal Benny saying they put nylon thread in Ed’s mouth, to keep his lips moving. I didn’t believe him. They wouldn’t do that to a horse, not even for TV.
