What a relief!

That sigh you heard Thursday noon was by yours truly, walking out of the Dubuque Post Office. Three years of my work on the Red Faber biography is complete (for now). The manuscript is en route to McFarland Publishers in Jefferson, N.C. Proofing galleys, revising and indexing await, of course, but it is a relief to have (most of) the work behind me. I am looking forward to straightening up my research files, cleaning up my office area and even reconciling the family checkbook. Free time awaits!
