This blog is a kind of digital scrapbook where I investigate the act of reading and also the act of writing with the help of many artists and writers. If you would like to subscribe to posts, here's the place to do it.

As for me, I'm the author of The Twenty-Seventh Letter of the Alphabet, a memoir (University of Nebraska Press) and Sock (part of Bloomsbury's Object Lessons series), I also edited the anthology of lyric essays called The Shell Game: Writers Play with Borrowed Forms. My essays and stories have appeared in O Magazine, Agni Magazine, the Gettysburg Review, Tin House, and many other places. More info is available on on my website.
