“Loverboy” was adapted for a feature film directed by Kevin Bacon. Swoon (2003,

work has been widely anthologized and translated. Redel’s fiction, poetry and
essays have appeared in numerous magazines and journals including Granta.com, Harvard Review, The Quarterly, The Literarian, New York Times, L.A.
