The idea for this weblog came to me in discussions with the publicity people at the University of Michigan Press, who told me it was a good way to make contact with interested readers when a new book was about to appear. The book they have scheduled for next October is Atlas: Selected Essays, 1989-2007. It's part of their Poets' Prose series, now edited by Marilyn Hacker and Annie Finch. It's the second collection of literary essays I've published.
I'm new to the blog process and don't know what use I will make of it or what sort of response to expect. But at least I've suited up and made a beginning.
