Do I dare write a book? YOU BET
A few weeks ago, I opened my mailbox and pulled out something I never imagined would be keeping company with my Verizon bill: A contract from the University of Chicago Press for a nonfiction book they want me to write. The book contract arrived two days before I would fly to Bennington College in Vermont, where I was preparing to workshop my first novel in its highly respected low residency master's program in writing.
