Recent publications

My interview with New York novelist Arthur Nersesian is now out both online and in print in the October issue of The Brooklyn Rail. Arthur has been a favorite writer of mine for years, and it was an unexpected but welcome surprise that I was able to meet him in person last January at an event at the KGB bar. He is currently getting ready to do a promo tour of his new book, Swing Voter of Staten Island, which promises to expand his inimitable, edgy narrative style into Philip K. Dickian territories. I'm very much looking forward to reading it.

Also - just keeping you up to date here - my latest political essay went up a few weeks ago at Cyrano's/TPC. Speaking of my political diatribes, I will soon be adding a third section to the publications page called "political essays" which will include links to my essays which have been published somewhere other than a print or online journal (i.e. blogs).

It is October 20th, and the leaves are only just now starting to change color. Am I the only one who finds this a little bit odd?
