Please let me know if you have comments or suggestions on this site.

I blog about literature and criticism at Novel Readings; from 2008 to 2010 I was also a contributor to the academic group blog The Valve. I help edit the online literary journal Open Letters Monthly and have published reviews and essays there and in other venues including the Times Literary SupplementQuill & QuireCanadian Notes and Queries, and The Quarterly Conversation.
