The Strange Child
I'm writing the libretto for a full-length chamber opera based on a little-known fairy tale by E.T.A. Hoffmann. The music for The Strange Child will be composed by Julia Werntz. Commissioned by the Pittsburg-based chamber music group Kamraton, the opera will premiere in the spring of 2021.

"Afterwords" book
My contribution Fiction Advocate's Afterwords Series will be part personal essay, part critical analysis of Karl Ove Knausgaard's six-volume novel My Struggle. Expected publication date 2020.
