The blog: Commentary, new thinking, and questions about politics and works of creative nonfiction. A weird mix, admittedly. Updated twice a week, localish on Tuesdays, broader on Fridays.

Me: An essayist and cultural critic, living and writing at the confluence of Appalachia and the Rust Belt. Work has appeared in many American literary journals, including Blue Mesa ReviewCreative NonfictionGettysburg Review, and Gulf Coast. There’s also a book, All-American Redneck: Variations on an Icon, from James Fenimore Cooper to the Dixie Chicks.
