About meI'm a poet, biographer, literary critic, and rudimentary bass player and painter.

About my libraryMy library (which I fear will never be quite catalogued, as there are whole rooms I haven't yet gotten to) is strong in contemporary and modernist poetry, decent in poetry criticism, and okay in philosophy. I have an indecent number of books on Ezra Pound and James Joyce, & a largely uncatalogued (as yet) stash of Marxist criticism and theory. Over the last few years I've begun to acquire books on John Ruskin, but the biggest movement in my collections continues to be the influx of slim volumes of contemporary poetry.

I spend way too much on books (I suspect several booksellers' children have me to thank for their orthodontia), & probably spend way too much time reading.
