Moonlighting for Verso Press

At the instigation of Mike Davis, from 1993 to 2000 I copy edited, reviewed manuscripts, and worked on problem texts for Verso Press.

The most memorable and satifying projects were Brian Cross’ 1993 history of rap music in Los Angeles, It’s Not About a Salary and Roxanne Dunbar-Otriz’s 1997 memoir Red Dirt: Growing Up Okie.

And then there was John Chase's Glitter Stucco & Dumpster Diving (2000)—but that was not memorable because all the texts John submitted were perfect, and there wasn't anything for me to do.
