Ari Bookman

Ari is a Ph.D. candidate in English at Northwestern University. He studies contemporary global literature, focusing on East Africa, and is particularly interested in the hidden symmetries between reading and consumption. He's just back from a two-month research trip to Nairobi, which he says is actually a nice place once you get to know it. 

Ari is the TriQuarterly Graduate Fellow for 2010-11, so he will be contributing to the blog and Views section as well as sneaking around behind the scenes.
