Welcome to Alison’s page, a cork-lined writing refuge!


My first book, HOOD, is available from Bloomsbury Publishing. 

Latest essays and articles: my column on opera fandom has blasted off at The Paris Review Daily! I also visited Paris’s National Museum of the History of Immigration for Hyperallergic and Baltimore’s National Great Blacks in Wax Museum for Lapham’s Quarterly Roundtable
