I always have something going on.

Currently, I’m co-editing, along with J. Michael Lennon and Susan Mailer, Norman Mailer’s journal from the winter of 1945–55, called Lipton’s Journal, a reference to the “tea,” or cannabis, he would take before recording his thoughts and insights. This book should be published later this year or early in 2023 for Mailer’s centenary.

I edit Wikipedia fairly often. I wrote my first complete article in the summer of 2018 on Norman Mailer’s short story “The Man Who Studied Yoga.” Since, I have made multiple edits over a range of articles, written new ones, and regularly teach graduate and undergraduate courses using Wikipedia.
