Associate Professor of English Joshua Corey
saw the publication of his first novel, Beautiful Soul: An American Elegy
(Spuyten Duyvil Press, June 1, 2014). The book centers around Ruth, a bored and frustrated young mother in the Chicago suburbs haunted by the letters she receives from her own mother, who has been dead for several years. Corey also expects to publish his fourth book of poems, The Barons (Omnidawn), in October.
