My first novel, Cleaning Nabokov's House, was published by Touchstone Fireside, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. The book is also published in Italy, Russia, and Brazil, and is forthcoming in Poland. Stories and essays have appeared in Ploughshares, The Missouri Review, The Florida Review, Gulf CoastThe Santa Monica Review and, New Ohio Review. The Shooting Gallery in New York City produced my one-act play. I have been nominated for Best American Essays, three (or 4?) times for the Pushcart Prize and for the Best of the Associated Writing Programs. For five years I was the fiction editor for The Green Mountains Review. I am teaching fiction at the Spalding MFA program, and underway with another novel.
