  • About Me

    Founder and publisher of Atticus Books, a small, independent publishing house dedicated to redefining the role of literature and discovering new voices.

    Rabble-rousing old soul with a penchant for satire and sun-dried tomatoes. Sworn enemy and frequent misuser——Strunk & White, I revere and salute ye——of the closed em dash.

    Dan can be reached at danc@atticusbooks.net.

    Why do you write?

    Flies buzzing about my head fuel my passion to write.

    The scent of garlic and olive medleys from the kitchen fuel my passion to edit.

    A couple of single-malt scotches, accompanied by a desire to engulf great literature, fuel my passion to publish.

    I'm easily distracted, can you tell?

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    To be completely self-serving, how about I list all of the published books by Atticus authors. No?

    OK, how about I mention a few greats, such as Don DeLillo, Tom Robbins, and Kurt Vonnegut? Hmm, that doesn't seem like a varied enough list.

    How about George Orwell, E.B. White, and Annie Dillard? Still doesn't cut it.

    I'm a great admirer of Anne Lamott, Charles Bukowski, David Sedaris, Raymond Carver, Dorothy Parker, and Flannery O'Connor. How's that for variety?

    Eh, forget it.

    Hi, Mike & Susan (and Robert and Darryl and Matthew) -

    My best laid intentions of being active on Fictionaut have gone awry before I'd even had a chance to get started... but I guess there's no expiration date on my account, so cool. Look forward to catching up in different group settings...

    I'm glad you dug the panel discussion... To do it right (and help everyone's cause, mine included), we should make a full day workshop out of it. Cheers, DC

    Susan Tepper – Apr 22, 2011
