A native of the fiftieth state, which I don’t visit as often as I should, I joined the Press in June of 1989 after receiving a BA from Harvard University and an MA from the University of Chicago. In addition to assisting the editorial director of acquisitions with humanities titles, I also acquire books in medieval studies and poetry, as well as manage two series, Phoenix Poets and The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe. A roving humanist by nature and profession, my recent acquisitions for the Press reflect my varied interests, including: Ozone Journal and Vise and Shadow, by Peter Balakian; The Mystic Fable, by Michel de Certeau (translated by Michael B. Smith); That Kind of Happy, by Maggie Dietz; The Mercenary Mediterranean, by Hussein Fancy; Last Lake and How Poems Think, by Reginald Gibbons; Parables of Coercion, by Seth Kimmel; Anyone, by Nate Klug; Forbidden City, by Gail Mazur; Physics Envy, by Peter Middleton; Habitual Offenders, by Craig Monson; Disorder, by Vanesha Pravin; The Worldmakers, by Ayesha Ramachandran; Life Pig and That Self-Forgetful Perfectly Useless Concentration, by Alan Shapiro; Siena: City of Secrets, by Jane Tylus; and Calle Florista, by Connie Voisine.
