About Me

I'm the owner of the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography (cclapcenter.com).

Why do you write?

I look mainly for intelligence and originality in the creative projects that take up my time. Like many, I have become alarmed in recent years at the rapidly dwindling quality of the American arts, and am always on the lookout for projects that buck that trend.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Favorite authors of the last two years include Charles Stross, Robert Freeman Wexler, Marjane Satrapi, Lynsday Faye, Neal Stephenson, Justina Robson, Ian McDonald, Denis Johnson, Kyle Beachy, John Domini, Michael FitzGerald, Robert Bolano, Chuck Palahniuk, Malcolm Gladwell, Philip Gura, Liz Moore, Tod Wodicka, Anne Enright, Douglas Coupland, Max Brooks, John Crowley, Cory Doctorow, Wesley Stace, Anya Ulinich, Miranda July, Cormac McCarthy, Stephen Marche, Haruki Murakami, Robert Lohr, Christian Jungersen, Heidi Julavits, TC Boyle, Michel Houllebecq, and Michael Chabon.
