About the Author

In the context of human existence since the end of the last ice age 11,000 years ago, perhaps the most impressive thing about Maya Alexandri is that she still has all her teeth. Even her work - for a not insignificant period of time - in the legal profession has not provoked a disastrous punch in the jaw. Nor has imbibing the acidic smog of Beijing, a city she called "home" for the better part of a decade, caused tooth loss. Attribute this blessing to the fact that she is not a mouth breather. Don't ask about her sinuses. Maya worried that she cracked a tooth in Botswana, once, when she bit into an insufficiently ripe guava. But she didn't. Maya fell asleep one night in Louisiana and dreamed that Death came to her and put his boney finger in her mouth, and she bit it off, whereupon she awoke with a ghastly "crunch" resounding in her ears, and ran to the bathroom fearing broken teeth. But it was just a dream. Maya fell off the stage during a gig in Beijing, while performing a cover of the Jet song, "Are you gonna be my girl?," and she bruised her lower back. No teeth were injured in the fiasco. Maya's current projects include flossing, seeing reality as it is and accepting it, and appreciating how lucky she is in the context of human existence since the end of the last ice age 11,000 years ago. mayaalexandri.com
