I'm a chowder-loving Bostonian turned lactose-intolerant resident of Evanston, where I’m raising two unpredictably delightful children. I teach English in Chicago at the Parker School and adult ed seminars at the Newberry Library, and for years I’ve been working on a memoir about my grandfather, a prolific writer for radio and television who took himself from Ellis Island to The Today Show, damaged my pelvic floor, and hoodwinked 55 million Americans. He also saved you from syphilis.
