Before working with Justice
Siracuse I was a law clerk in both the
Fourth and Second Appellate Divisions, and I wrote and argued felony
appeals for the Monroe County Public Defender's Office.
Long ago I owned and ran a classical record store next to Rochester's
Little Theatre. I have been active in many fields, but my main love is
My children's history of the Adirondacks, Our Wilderness,
was honored as
the best individual cultural contribution to the Park's centennial. My
most recent book, The Fiction of a
Thinkable World: Body,
Meaning, and the Culture of Capitalism,
should be published
Review Press when you read this.
I live in the Park Avenue district of Rochester with my wife Loret,
a gifted photographer who teaches at the Rochester Institute of
Technology, and two very confident cats.
