For reasons I won't go into here, the book I just finished will not be published by Henry Holt. We are looking to place it in some other house, but it will take some time. If anyone is reading this and was interested in reading another book by me, I'm afraid you're going to have to wait a while.
Meanwhile, hope ever springing, I started what will probably be yet another unpublishable novel, a Tolstoyan epic set in central Europe 1786-1848 about the conflict between aristocratic conservatives and liberal nationalists. I've always been interested in cultural conflicts and how and why they make people crazy. Good thing we're past all that nowadays!
