About meI'm Chair and Associate Professor in the Rhetoric Division at Boston University's College of General Studies. Love literature, with a particular interest in the essay. Also interested in pottery, opera (and classical music) and ashtanga yoga.
About my libraryFor an academic, it's not so big. I believe in borrowing books from the library and returning them! Reuse, recycle, etc. Plus my condo is pretty small, so space is limited.
