John Taylor is originally from Des Moines, and left the United States in 1975, studied in Germany, spent a year in Greece, then settled in France, where he still lives. His first collection of short stories, The Presence of Things Past (Story Line Press, 1992), evokes his Midwestern childhood. A sequel, Mysteries of the Body and the Mind, is forthcoming from Story Line in late 1997. As a critic, he covers contemporary French literature for the Times Literary Supplement in London and is responsible for the “Books” pages of France Magazine, published by the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. He also reviews regularly for Poetry. ["Contributor Note" from original publication, 1998.]
