Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Masters Review is a welcome addition to the long list of American literary journals. The prose, by turns quiet, experimental, and starkly honest, ranges widely in subject matter and style, but is always of high quality.”  —George Estreich, Oregon Book Award winner and author, The Shape of the Eye

Good To Know

Many-if not most-of my ancestors are Mennonite or Amish, all Pennsylvania Dutch-my grandfather still can speak Pennsylvania Dutch, and there's a Groffdale in Lancaster County filled with people who look curiously like me.

I spent a year between high school and college as a Rotary Youth Exchange Student in Nantes, France-mostly in the house of a family with a catering business (when I returned from France, I'd gained so much weight that my parents didn't recognize me at first in the airport).

My sister Sarah is an elite triathlete, fourth in the US, trying to make the an Olympic berth for Beijing this summer. She's definitely my hero.
