Bill Savage teaches Chicago literature, film, history, and culture at Northwestern University and the Newberry Library of Chicago. He regularly writes book reviews for the Chicago Tribune, op-ed essays for Crain's Chicago Business, various random things for other publications with "Chicago" on their mastheads, as well as performing live-lit essays for The Paper Machete and other venues. His most recent book project, with Paul Durica, was an edited and annotated edition of Chicago by Day and Night: The Pleasure-Seeker's Guide to the Paris of America, an in-the-know guide Chicago nightlife during the 1893 World's Fair. He is currently at work on edited and annotated editions of Ben Hecht's autobiography and George Ade's The Old-Time Saloon, both forthcoming from the University of Chicago Press. You can follow him on Twitter @rogersparkman.
