14sqcover_4.jpgFishbowlLA checks out the LA Weekly cover story on Laura Albert, and gets a quote from reporter Nancy Rommelmann about how it came together:

“It was easy not to judge her; harder, was to take all this information and let it find its form. It took a long time, like, five effing months. I have a big thing about wanting not to betray those who’ve spoken to me. I’m fairly certain Laura won’t see it this way, but, I did my best to let her tell me the story as she saw it, and then build into that what I found.”
