About meArt historian, teaching in Chicago.

I am working on two books about experimental writing that uses images: nonfiction (305737.blogspot.com/) and fiction (www.writingwithimages.com).

Excepts from my books, etc., and contact form:

About my libraryMy reviews here aren't for people who haven't read the books. They are problems raised by the books. I am happy to discuss the reviews (if that's what they are), but they're mostly mnemonics for me.

Reviews here are complete up to 2013; since then I have been posting on the two sites listed above -- many more reviews are there.

Also, sorry LibraryThing made me add all my own books, in order to qualify as an author. (July 2009)
