Read full description of the books:
At fifty-two, psychiatrist Philip Adler is divorced, alone, and gutted of passion. When a funeral draws him back to his ex-wife's homeland of France, the trip reunites him with a trauma he has struggled to forget: the brutal death of his teenage daughter fifteen years earlier. Prodded by his former brother-in-law and stirred by the unspent embers of his marriage, he embarks on a mission to resolve lingering questions about this past, hoping to heal himself along the way. The search leads to a disturbed man who may hold more answers than anyone expects-if only Philip can hear what he's trying to say. A suspenseful literary novel set in the lush backgrounds of Normandy, Theory of Remainders explores the secret ties between love, trauma, and language.

Read information about the authorI write fiction. I also teach it -- mostly at Carleton College, in Northfield, Minnesota.
On my way to academia I staggered through quite a number of bizarre jobs: house painting, uranium mining, factory work, slave labor in a French château, coastline preservation in Brittany, every imaginable aspect of the restaurant industry, small engine repair, small office work, translation, sales and marketing.... That's just for starters. I'll spare you the full list.
My academic training focused on French literature of the nineteenth-century, and I came to creative writing rather late. Back in college I'd taken a couple of creative writing courses, but for the most part I've done the MFA of hard knocks. What have I learned about writing during these years? First, it's important to have a clear point of departure. Second, you need to listen to others -- but still make up your own mind. Finally, you have to work hard, almost every single day. There's more to it, of course, but those principles have served me well.
When I'm not writing or teaching (or grading), I can often be found on my bicycle, rolling along some country road.
