    1. Dear David,

      Thanks for getting in touch, and I hope the search goes well! I’m sure you’ll have some good applicants. Meanwhile, I’m thrilled to say that I just accepted a tenure track job at Wake Forest.

      I hope things are going well for you and for the program!



      1. Dear Elena — Reread your upbeat review of Dancing Backward and decided to thank you again… and to read some of your tasty-sounding oeuvre. Russian lit. Ah, at least I can still recite my favorite Lermontov poem about Odysseus…. Belye-yet Parus, odunokee, tumanya morya golumbom, cho eschet on stranye dalyokee, chto eschet on v’irayoo rodnom… which I saw posted outside the dining room of a Russian passenger ship, the Lermontov, many years ago. A ship which now resides on the bottom of the Tasman sea, alas. –Thomas Lavalle
