In Search of Samuel R. Delany

I have a new review essay in the Los Angeles Review of Books on two recently published books by Chip Delany: In Search of Silence: The Journals of Samuel R. Delany, Volume I, 1957-1969 (Wesleyan University Press, 2017) and Voyage, Orestes! (Bamberger Books, 2019).

Return to The Nostalgia Trap

I recently dialed in to the podcast The Nostalgia Trap to discuss my new book The Blackademic Life, the state of academia, and many other topics. I was a guest on the podcast way back in 2014, so it was great to catch up with my CUNY Graduate Center colleague David Parsons and chop it up about life on the other side of graduate school.
