I’m happy to say that my String Quartet OCD has received some press over the last several months. This piece, in the autobiographical tradition of string quartets (think: Beethoven, Smetena, Janacek, Berg, Shostakovich…), concerns my experience with postpartum OCD, a serious condition that affects up to 9% of postpartum mothers and some fathers, too.

Here are the links to press and reviews:
