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 (1984) from Harvard University and an MA (1985) from the University of Chicago. In addition to assisting the editorial director of the Press’s books division in acquiring books in literary studies and religion, 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. As a roving humanist by nature and profession, my recent acquisitions for the Press reflect my varied interests, including: Near/Miss, by Charles Bernstein; Strange Footing, by Seeta Chaganti; My Bishop and Other Poems, by Michael Collier; Fort Necessity, by David Gewanter; Losers Dream On, by Mark Halliday; Staging Contemplation, by Eleanor Johnson; Shakespeare’s Lyric Stage, by Seth Lerer; The Making of Measure and the Promise of Sameness, by Emanuele Lugli; Catastrophizing, by Gerard Passannante; Against Translation, by Alan Shapiro; Spill, by Bruce Smith; The Danger of Romance, by Karen Sullivan; and The Bower, by Connie Voisine.
