Big News!

If you’ve visited Notes in the Margin before, you know that in the fall of 2005 I went back to school to work on my doctorate. I have now finally finished my degree. With all my newly found free time, I’ll be able to make regular updates to this Web site again.


This first round of updates includes the following:

·A streamlined design

·A literary calendar

·Several new entries in the glossary of literary terms

·New reviews of books by Ann Hood, Ken Follett, Stephanie Kallos, and Emma Donoghue
