Blasts from the past


Way, way back in the day, I spent a year as Books Editor at The Stanford Daily. It was a wonderful experience doing campus journalism alongside my graduate school studies. Recently the publication put the entirety of its archives online. Stanford Magazine explains how this was accomplished.

Typing my name into the search engine doesn’t locate my entire oeuvre, but keystroking “Bob Basil” does find my loving tribute to the band Katrina and the Waves as well as my take on Sam Shepard’s “Fool for Love.” “Robert Basil” will get you my discourteous take-*down* of Cynthia Ozick, which still embarrasses me.
