Biography

AMD, 2013

I read, teach, and write in New York City. My articles, essays, notes, and reviews, covering topics from Oscar Wilde's trials to Bob Dylan and High Modernism, have appeared in books, critical editions, magazines, and journals from "The New York Times" to "Isis" to "Hot Press" to "The Times Literary Supplement." In April 2013, I started a blog for the Huffington Post on literature, music, baseball, and what comes to mind. Recently, I've been writing longer things, too. My first novel, which I finished over the summer, was a delight to write -- most of the time. Currently, I'm revising it, and working on a book about F. Scott Fitzgerald.

My degrees in American history and English are from Harvard University (A.B.), Georgetown University (M.A.), and Princeton University (Ph.D.). In the 1990s, I also practiced law (University of Virginia, J.D.). Though my specialty has long been Irish and Irish-American literature and culture, I've taught courses across the fields of English, Irish, and American literature, as a graduate student, lecturer, and visiting professor, at Princeton, the University of Richmond, Glucksman Ireland House/​New York University, Bard College, and in the humanities and literary studies divisions of the New School University in Manhattan. Currently, I'm on leave. I will be offering courses at The New School and at Bard from February 2015. Please contact me by email here, or via @​venetianblonde on Twitter. Thank you.
