Author has written 4 stories for General.
Graduate looking for someone to give what I post a fair reading.
I write short stories, though soon I hope to work up to novels.
Anthony Burgess and James Joyce are my influences, though I enjoy most of what I read. I don't do much genre fiction or fantasy, however I adore Jorge Luis Borges and what little I've read of Donald Barthelme.
I play piano and the fiddle. Beethoven I count as a literary influence, but I enjoy most romantic composers and some modernists. Alban Berg's opera "Lulu" is a favourite.
Big fan of music, particularly these guys. Also, Arctic Monkeys, Florence & the Machine, Vampire Weekend.
My German is fine, my French conversational. Some Russian. Piece of Gaelic and Welsh and Italian.
I like traveling and will do my best to be on my feet for most of the next decade.
