'I have no business praising myself to you. But who can I trust to do it for me?'
-- Marcel Proust
Hello. And welcome to my web site. Which is an odd thing to be typing, considering that I worked in online media for decades before I launched this site.
An early adopter of the Internet yet slow to make an online home for himself — how does that happen?
Oh, very easily.
I still use the AOL e-mail address I had in 1994.
For most of this century, I’ve had a cell phone thick as a brownie, with the numbers of ‘my five’ taped to the back.
I post on Twitter, but I still believe that 1,000 words can be worth more than a picture.
And since 2004 I’ve had an online cultural residence, stocked with books, music and movies, at Head Butler.
It goes without saying that I don’t like cat videos and lists. Or political writing by professional pundits. Or writing in which the word “journey” appears.
So you’ll see none of that here.
What you’ll find:
— a list of my books and buy links.
— a page about one book in particular — my most recent book, “Married Sex.”
— a page of links to my journalism, with a selection of “Greatest Hits” at the top.
Writers live for interruptions. (Well, me, anyway.) If you write me, I’ll respond.
