Autumn Closing In

April 18, 2017

This latest edition of the New England Review includes a long essay of mine, “Autumn Closing In,” a significantly revised version of a piece I posted a few years ago on this website when I’d reached a bit of an impasse with the material. I’m grateful to Carolyn Kuebler for her editorial guidance, and to Liz Van Hoose, who looked at an earlier version.

Event at Highpoint Center for Printmaking

November 14, 2016

Tonight I’ll be at the Highpoint Center for Printmaking with the painter, video artist, and book artist Carolyn Swiszcz. I feel a real kinship with Carolyn’s funny and lonesome work, which is why I asked her to do the cover for my last novel. We’ll talk about that collaboration, and about a very small book we put together for the show, and some of Carolyn’s recent work will be on display, and I’ll read from the novel and play a song from my album-in-progress. You can RSVP here.
