The first three of a series of essays on obscure and neglected writers published in the journal CRAFT: Exploring the Art of Fiction: “An Extremely Disorganized Life,” about the life and work of Japanese novelist Osamu Dasai; “Master of the Touching Detail,” about French novelist Emmanuel Bove, and “More than Mere Oblivion,” about Scottish-Italian author Alexander Trocchi and his autobiographical novel Cain’s Book in www.craftliterary.com. Two other essays—one about Gabriel D’Annunzio and his book-length prose-poem Notturno, the other about Marcelle Sauvageot and her uncategorizable short masterpiece Commentary, are forthcoming for the same journal.

My novel “Duplicity” was among five finalists selected from over 300 entries by judge Christy Sitwell for the 2020 Elixir Press Fiction Award.
