About me

Gender MALE
Introduction An English professor for nearly a quarter of a century, I am the author of The Elephants Teach (Chicago, 2006) and coeditor (with Paul M. Hedeen) of Unrelenting Readers (Story Line, 2004). Educated in the public schools of Riverside, I earned my degrees from the University of California at Santa Cruz, where I founded the literary magazine Quarry (later Quarry West) with Raymond Carver; Washington University in St. Louis, where I wrote a masters thesis on Stanley Elkin under Stanley Elkin; and Northwestern University, where I held the TriQuarterly Fellowship and studied under Gerald Graff and Joseph Epstein. After twenty years at Texas A&M University, I now live in Columbus, Ohio, with my wife Naomi and our four children: Dov, Saul, Isaac, and Miriam (“Mimi”).
