What do our professors do when they aren't at schools? Do they, like our second grade art teachers, live in the supply closet? How does new faculty member, Kyle Beachy, spend his time?
Well, as it turns out, when Beachy is not in class, and when he is not wildly marking student manuscripts with clever comments, or going over each weeks reading assignment for a third time, or writing short stories and essays, and when he is not answering the phone calls of acceptance that these stories and essays engender, or polishing his glasses, or praising his dog, Beachy is reading.
Recently, Beachy read The Pale King by David Foster Wallace. His impassioned review of this Little, Brown & Company novel can be found online at St. Louis Magazine. Read the review now, and then add the novel to your summer reading list! If Beachy can do it, so can you!
