Bio:

(from the author website)

Lots of writers say that writers’ lives are boring, and they’re right.

I got my BA from Columbia University and my PhD from Harvard, and I’ve been teaching at Fordham University since 1989, with the exception of half a year in Tanzania as a Fulbright lecturer. I live in New Jersey with my wife and daughter, travel when I can, take notes when I do, and try to recognize good stories when they happen around me (or to me). But mostly I teach undergraduate and graduate students, and I write about books, ideas, and whatever else comes to mind.

I’ve written a lot of scholarly articles besides the ones that are collected elsewhere on this site under Other Writing.

Books:

The Cambridge Companion to Baseball

The Cambridge History of The American Novel

Hard-Boiled Sentimentality: The Secret History of American Crime Stories

Rereading Jack London

The Inhuman Race: The Racial Grotesque in American Literature and Culture

Edgar Allan Poe: Literary Theory and Criticism

The Cambridge Companion to Theodore Dreiser
