About this Weblog and its Administrator
This web-blog, begun in late September 2009, is devoted chiefly to literature, and takes the form of a kind of commonplace book, with commentary, often lengthy. (Along the right “side-bar” you’ll see an honest-to-god commonplace book.)
Mark Richardson, author of “The Era of Casual Fridays,” lives and works in Kyoto, Japan. He grew up in South Carolina & Georgia, was educated at the University of South Carolina and at Rutgers University, taught for ten years at Western Michigan University, before moving to Kyoto in 2003, where he now teaches at Doshisha University.
Much of what you’ll see in these web-pages derives from what he does in the classroom.
