I teach a range of classes in the English Department at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh. In particular: 'Comedy', 'Books You Should Have Read By Now', 'The Lost Generation', 'The Beat Generation'. I am completing a book revising Booth's ideas about a 'rhetoric of fiction', focussing on problem cases he would exclude for excessive irony/unreliable narrator. When that is done I'll work on a book tentatively called 'Two Stupid Writers: Hemingway and Kerouac'. The book will try to show that both writers are after all really intelligent, and will delineate the ways in which intelligence works in good writing. I was educated first in Canada, at the University of British Columbia, and then did a Ph.D. at the University of Edinburgh.
