Whitman Illuminated Officially Released


After two years of working and waiting, the day has arrived: Whitman Illuminated: Song of Myself is officially released! Think I might slip into an indie bookstore or two to see it on the shelf. Then I’m going rollerskating.

I’ll be holding my first book events this week. The first will be at the Rosenbach Museum and Library on Thursday the 15th, followed by Brickbat Books on Saturday the 17th.

My sincerest thanks to my agent and friend Peter Steinberg, and to the folks at Tin House, who have been nothing less than fantastic throughout this entire process.

I suppose we’ll see what the public thinks, now.
