More About the Author
Steven Moore--author, literary critic, editor, bookseller--was born outside Los Angeles in 1951, and moved to Littleton, Colorado, in 1963. He earned a B.A. and M.A. from the University of Northern Colorado (1973, 1974), and later a Ph.D. from Rutgers University (1988). From 1988 until 1996 he was Managing Editor of the Dalkey Archive Press/Review of Contemporary Fiction, and has at various periods in his life worked as a bookseller for both independents and chains. He lives alone in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
He is the author/editor of several books and essays on modern literature, especially on William Gaddis--his edition of Gaddis's letters was published in February 2013--and for decades Moore has reviewed new books for a variety of periodicals, primarily for the "Washington Post." In April 2010, Continuum published the first volume of his "The Novel: An Alternative History"; Bloomsbury published volume 2, 1600-1800, in August 2013.
