About Me

Like a lot of writers, I served a long apprenticeship in journalism. I'd have more fiction published, but for way too long I only submitted to the New Yorker and Paris Review.

Why do you write?

It's trite to say I write because I have to write, but I'm going to say that anyway. Like walking, it's what I've done since childhood, and for a long time it was how I made my living. Witnessing humanity's enduring creativity fuels my creativity. I regularly put myself presence in the hotspots of human creativity: the cathedrals, the Renaissance palaces, the art, the theaters, the crumbling marble ruins of the past.

Any favorite authors? Books?

I like Dante. I like Shakespeare, and I like the usual 20th-21st Century modernists and post modernists. I like Virginia Woolf, Nabokov, Fuentes, Paul Auster and Don DeLillo, Toni Morrison, Umberto Eco....
