You may have clicked your way here because you read my books, or you’ve been reading my work in magazines and anthologies, in paper and online.  Maybe you know about my motherhood research.  Maybe you’ve heard I’m a member of Chicago’s pre-Roe abortion underground, called JANE.  Perhaps you’re looking for my book about Grace Paley.

You’ll find all that on this site: writing & reading, politics & performance — along with a little biography and magic.

Whatever else you read here, be sure to pick up your homework assignment.
