It’s been a minute since I updated. Here’s some recent publishing news:
My essay “The Sum of Our Doing,” which is about the Camino de Santiago, identity, tragedy, and competition (among other things), appears in Bodies Built for Game: The Prairie Schooner Anthology of Contemporary Sports Writing, edited by Natalie Diaz and Hannah Ensor, due out from University of Nebraska Press on October 1.
I contributed to North American Review’s exceptionally cool “Every Atom: Whitman at 200” project, curated by Brian Clements, which features annotations on Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself” by writers, scholars, and artists of many kinds. You can find baseball and kisses here in No. 107.
I’m still writing for Baseball Prospectus’s Short Relief. Some recent favorites:
Fortuitous Harbingers: Good Omens was basically my favorite part of this summer, and Good Omens, if you didn’t know (and I can see how you might not), is a baseball show.
How You Frame It: On pedagogy and catching and the start of a new school year.
And an interview with David Wanczyk, author of Beep: Inside the Unseen World of Baseball for the Blind (2018, Ohio Swallow Press), which is an excellent book and you should read it.
