Growing up in Memphis, John became an early regular at Davis-Kidd, coming by the store every month with his mom to browse the stacks. After graduating from NYU and teaching English as a Foreign Language in Russia, John has returned to Memphis and is excited to join the Novel team. His favorite books cover a range of topics from Russian history and literature to modern African-American literature. When he's not selling books, he can be found biking on the Wolf River Greenway or watching the latest season of Netflix's Stranger Things.
