David Huddle, Professor Emeritus at the University of Vermont, Visiting Distinguished Professor of Creative Writing at Hollins College, and a longtime member of the Bread Loaf/Vermont faculty,
has published his tenth work of fiction, Nothing Can Make Me Do This (Tupelo Press, 2011).
The novel follows the innermost thoughts and intimate secrets of three generations of Housemans. Publishers Weekly praises the novel as “ravishing, charged with both desire and emotional turmoil; his insights, though sometimes unsettling, skillfully mirror reality.”
