About meI am a life-long New Yorker. I went to New York University and St. John's School of Law and now live in Tudor City, a charming neighborhood near the United Nations. I was a practicing musician and a lawyer before becoming a published author. While practicing law at a big law firm in New York City, I began writing fiction. I published short stories over a period of years, in journals like Fence, Hayden's Ferry Review, Denver Quarterly, The Literary Review, Cimarron Review, redivider, Sycamore Review, and others. Someday Everything All Makes Sense is my first published novel. I was able to mine my knowledge of the law and music theory in telling the story of Luther van der Loon, an eccentric harpsichord who has recently suffered the trauma of losing his mother. Luther is preoccupied with existential questions and questions concerning temperament, the mathematical ratios that govern how we hear music. Like most of my writing, the novel might be characterized as tragic-comic. I believe, like the great Italo Calvino, that "lightness" -- by which I mean to say a sense of playfulness leavening the serious -- is a cardinal virtue of writing. (I love Calvino, Joyce, Nabokov, Woolf, Borges, Melville, Chekhov, Gogol, Pynchon, Cormac McCarthy, Sebald....)

About my libraryI have eclectic tastes, but I favor prose stylists, writers who are master wordsmiths. I like writers who push language and form; writers who tell their stories in novel ways; writers who leaven the tragic with the comic.
