About meI've lived in Minnesota since 1990, except for one academic year (2006-2007) spent in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, England. I have a Ph.D. in classics from Brown University, and I occasionally teach Latin. But mostly, I'm a writer. My poetry chapbook, The Collecting Jar, won the 2004 Grayson Books Poetry Chapbook Competition, and a selection of my poetry was included in the anthology 33 Minnesota Poets. I've also published essays and short stories in The New England Review, Pleiades, and elsewhere. My wife is a classics professor. We have two sons.

My profile picture is of me reading Wordsworth beside Grasmere (June 2007).

About my libraryI read mostly novels by women (e.g., Virago Modern Classics and Persephone Books) and books about American history. The books catalogued here still only represent a small fraction of the books in my house.
