About

I live in Philadelphia. When not working, I write poems and think about how to write them, often accompanied by fragmentary critical prose.

I hold a Ph.D. in English from the University of Cambridge (2013), where my dissertation, The Difficult Style: A Study of the Poetry of J.H. Prynne was accepted without corrections.

My edition of The Collected Letters of Charles Olson and J.H. Prynne was published in June 2017 by University of New Mexico Press. It was recently reviewed in the TLS by David Herd.

The Last Shyness was recently published by Face Press out of Oxford (UK). It’s a tiny book.

I am currently co-editing the Prose [1960 – 2018] of J.H. Prynne with Keston Sutherland for Manchester University Press.
