self-promotional department

It's nice to find one's own face staring out at one from the internets, particularly in as astonishingly flattering a photograph as Shannon O'Brien's. Shoemaker & Hoard, in short, have put up a page for the forthcoming The Poem of a Life: A Biography of Louis Zukofsky. (Note handy link to the amazon.com page for the book, in case you have $20 burning a hole in your pocket.)

That is a sharp-looking picture. If this professor/writer thing doesn't pan out, you'll always have your modeling career to fall back on.

Congratulations on the forthcoming book.

The picture looks terrific (if I may say so myself). I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the book.
