Pulitzer Board Chief: Can I tell you a secret? I never learned how to read past the fourth-grade level.

No. 5: I love you. READ MORE

I hold a doctorate in English from Duke University and recently joined the Marquette University English faculty as an Assistant Professor. I love teaching African fiction and contemporary British novels. Brittle Paper is the virtual space/station where I play and experiment with ideas on how to reinvent African fiction and literary culture.
