What do you write about?

I start with events or interactions in my life that cause me to look out at the world, rather than solely inward. Then, I see where that takes me.

What do you enjoy reading?

The New Yorker; Creative Nonfiction; nonfiction by Orlean, Gladwell, Lopate, Gornick, Chabon, Kidder, Lethem, McPhee, Yagoda, Orwell; drama by Shakespeare, Williams; fiction by Joyce, Agee, Amis, Bausch, Bellow, O'Brien, Melville, Salinger, O'Connor; poetry by Lux, Bishop, Whitman, Rukeyser, Cummings.

What are your preferred genres?

I believe that all art is conversation. Poetry is one human being's attempt to reach one other human being through language. Without it, we lose one more way to communicate with each other.


I aspire to write essays, and I live in JP. I teach English at Newton South HS, and Rachel Becker invited me to join this group.
