About meI write fiction, nonfiction, short plays, poetry, letters, postcards...Prefer pen and ink and have a manual typewriter but confess to writing my most recent books on a PowerBook. I've published three books and used to write a diary from time to time for the New York Observer. I went to art school in Baltimore, took photographs, painted and fell in love with Japanese woodcuts. Instead of writing classses, studied Ancient Egyptian Grammar and Biosocial Aspects of Human Sexuality at Johns Hopkins, French at Peabody. Drink tea steeped in vintage teapots— it fuels the fury. What I'm writing— The Adventures of the Red Panda, 12 chapters, for my nephew Rupert, a fictionalized memoir: Lucky Me, formerly The 27 Notebooks of Nick Dante. Up on Guernica, a funny, sad story, The Last Geronimo...
JULY 11, 2008 The Daily News. Hip, surreal estate writer Jason Sheftell takes you to Laren and Paul's home, The Ivory Tower.

I adore old, hardcover books with embossed covers touched with gold and engravings over which there is a piece of tissue. And I have scraps of paper found on the street. I've stopped lending my books but sometimes...I give one away. (When you lend a book, you give it up.)
