I'm writer in residence at the Woodbridge Farm on Lake Erie at the moment, gawping at the beautiful surroundings and working on my next novel. My host, Grant Munroe, asked me to write an essay for the Woodbridge Farm series, which he and his team have produced as a handmade chapbook. I talk about photography, the city dump, childhood, and the National Portrait Gallery in London, UK, and--no thanks to me--it's a gorgeously made thing. You can order it here.
I'm the author of My Name is a Knife, All True Not a Lie In It, and The Old Familiar.
