Here are some samples from the manuscript of my  An Embarrassment of Swans: A Life On Campus and Onstage–no italics, of course, since it is still seeking an agent or a publisher.  A sequel to  A Fish in the Moonlight: Growing Up in the Bone Marrow Unit (West Lafayette, Ind.: Purdue University Press, 2008), it recounts events in my life from college days to the present.  The focus is on the interaction, especially the cross-influence of life at the university and in the theatre, teaching and performance, and–if you will–the thin line, for me, between reality and illusion.
