Essay to Appear in Columbia

June 6, 2008

I have been invited to contribute an essay to Columbia: A Journal of Literature & Art, published by the MFA Program at Columbia University in New York. Since 1977, Columbia has been publishing works by some of the greatest writers in the country and abroad. Notables include Raymond Carver, Jorge Luis Borges, Lorrie Moore, Louise Glück, Jane Kenyon, James Tate, Lydia Davis, Stephen Jay Gould, Noam Chomsky, Phillip Lopate, Ha Jin, Jonathan Lethem, Italo Calvino, John D’Agata, Steve Almond, Paul Muldoon and many, many others.

The journal comes out anually, so look for my essay, “Fourteen Fragments on My Great Big Superfund Childhood,” in their Spring 2009 issue.
