The Mark Anthony Neal Blurb
As I was finishing my manuscript for Bad Men, my publisher asked me for a list of scholars who they might contact to offer a book blurb. As I've noted here, Mark Anthony Neal's book Looking for Leroy, was a useful guide at an early stage in my research. More broadly, I've followed Neal's work for nearly the entirety of my career. So of course I mentioned his name to my publisher.
What a thrill to learn that he responded with a generous blurb.
