About meI'm a writer and college admissions worker in Chicago.

About my libraryWhen I was a kid, and my town's library still tracked its collection with stamps and slips, one of my great pleasures was to crack the cover of some back-shelf curiosity and see by its circulation history that I was the first to open it since before my birth.

Though I've stocked it with the usual classics, the bulk of my own library expresses that same passion for obscurity: forgotten genre forays by respected realists, middle-century literary science fiction, late medieval romances, Victorian ghost stories, Byzantine historians, and century-old one-novel wonders.

GroupsI Survived the Great Vowel Shift, Metafilter, Philosophy and Theory, Poetry Fool, Romance Languages, Writer-readers
