I was born and lived in Port Talbot, South Wales until I was 8. I lived in Bristol from 1968 to 1979. I have a degree in English and History from the University of East Anglia. I worked in the London secondhand book trade for four years in the 1980s. I moved to the US in 1988. I have an MA in English from Clark University in Worcester, a PhD in English and a Masters in Library and Information Science from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I lecture in the Hutton Honors College at Indiana University Bloomington. I have a six year old son named Jack. I read too much. I rarely get to teach it, but I like 19th-century fiction, Austen, Dickens, James, and Melville, in particular. I'm also a big fan of horse racing, baseball, pro basketball, and what only the Americans call soccer.
