Other Writings

I write about more than statues and presidents!

My essay on Claude Lanzmann’s Holocaust documentary Shoah appeared in Wig-Wag.

I wrote about six different albums during the RS500 Project:

The Beatles, Revolver

Ray Charles, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music

Pixies, Surfer Rosa

The Indestructible Beat of Soweto

Elvis Costello and the Attractions, Armed Forces

KISS, Destroyer

I’ve also written book reviews for Essay Daily, Pleiades Book Review, the Phi Beta Kappa Reporter, and others. I write a quarterly column about the governors of Alabama for Alabama Heritage Magazine. If you ask me, my favorite thing I’ve ever written is this essay, which appeared in Bellingham Review, Utne Reader, and was in Hallow This Ground, my first book.
