I’m delighted to announce that I’ve been named the Elizabeth Drew Professor at Smith College from 2013 to 2015. This is a real honor—Prof. Drew served as Sylvia Plath’s thesis adviser, and the chair has been held by some remarkable writers in the past. (My favorite? Kurt Vonnegut.) So, hello Pioneer Valley. I’ll look forward to seeing you this fall.
The Testament of Yves Gundron is at long last available as an eBook! So if you haven’t yet read it and would like to do so on your Kindle, Kobo, Nook, or iPad, it’s waiting for you at Amazon.com or via the iBooks app on your iPad or iPhone. You can also still get it in paperback, if you prefer to do your reading the old-fashioned way. Would it be ironic to read this novel about the complexities of blindly pursuing progress on a snazzy piece of technology? Maybe. But I’d like to think that the widespread adoption of these miraculous gadgets makes this book more relevant than ever. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
