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 literature, literary studies, and media and cultural studies, 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: Bitter English, by Ahmad Almallah; Rhythm, by Vincent Barletta; The War Makes Everyone Lonely, by Graham Barnhart; Radical as Reality, by Peter Campion; Two Menus, by Rachel DeWoskin; The Subject of Crusade, by Marisa Galvez; Old Thiess, a Livonian Werewolf, by Carlo Ginzburg and Bruce Lincoln; The Making of Measure and the Promise of Sameness, by Emanuele Lugli; The Indies of the Setting Sun, by Ricardo Padrón; Catastrophizing, by Gerard Passannante; Cartographic Humanism, by Katharina Piechocki; Against Translation, by Alan Shapiro; Arts of Dying, by D. Vance Smith; and The Bower, by Connie Voisine.
