I was invited to write the inaugural essay for Rear View Mirror, a new column under the aegis of HOW Journal that aims to reintroduce neglected and undervalued authors to a new audience. I’m excited to be a contributor to the project, and I hope readers of AMB will keep an eye on the column, as it promises to discuss some of the most significant writers still waiting in the wings.
