A native of the fiftieth state, which I don’t visit as often as I should, I joined the Press in June of 1989 after receiving a BA from Harvard University and an MA from the University of Chicago. In addition to assisting the editorial director of the Press’s books division in acquiring books in literary studies and religion, I also acquire books in medieval studies and poetry, as well as manage two series, Phoenix Poets and The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe. As a roving humanist by nature and profession, my recent acquisitions for the Press reflect my varied interests, including: Diary of Our Fatal Illness, by Charles Bardes; Children with Enemies, by Stuart Dischell; Last Lake and How Poems Think, by Reginald Gibbons; Haribhaṭṭa’s Jātakamālā, translated by Peter Khoroche; Animal Skins and the Reading Self in Medieval Latin and French Bestiaries, by Sarah Kay; The Medieval Invention of Travel, by Shayne Aaron Legassie; In the Skin of the Beast, by Peggy McCracken; Pasolini Requiem, by Barth David Schwartz; Little Kisses, by Lloyd Schwartz; Life Pig and That Self-Forgetful Perfectly Useless Concentration, by Alan Shapiro; Virgil’s Aeneid, translated by David Ferry; and Unlikely Designs, by Katie Willingham.
