Paul Skinner, Bristol, United Kingdom. In recent years, worked in publishing, as a bookseller and—less recently and rather fitfully—as a lecturer in 19th and 20th century British and American literature. Currently reader, writer, researcher. Primary interest: the modernist period, perhaps briefly summarised as ‘Ford Madox Ford and his Contemporaries’. Add scores of exceptions to this, from Angela Carter and W. G. Sebald to Sarah Waters and Ali Smith.
