Book Coverage

Recent and forthcoming books by friends and family

On, I've started an occasional "Northfield Writers" series, featuring profiles and interviews with local writers. My first profile was of Shannon Tassava, one of whose essays will appear in the collection P.S.: What I Didn't Say: Unsent Letters to Our Female Friends (Seal Press), forthcoming in October. My latest (ghost-written) profile is of Tom Swift, whose first book, Chief Bender's Burden (2008), was honored last weekend with the Seymour Medal from the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR). Finally, although he's not a local author, I have to mention my brother-in-law Jason Mittell, whose book Television and American Culture was recently published by Oxford University Press. Jason is an associate professor of American Studies and Film and Media Culture at Middlebury College. He also has his own blog, JustTV.Link
