Tony Abbott

Staff Pick

The old saying that “Those who can’t do, teach,” sure doesn’t apply to Tony Abbott. After earning degrees from Princeton and Harvard, Abbott became Assistant Professor of English at Davidson College, and in 1990 was named Charles A. Dana Professor of English. But Abbott’s literary skills go far beyond the classroom. He has written three books of poems, including The Girl in the Yellow Raincoat, and in 2003, his first novel, Leaving Maggie Hope, won the Novello Award and was published by Novello Festival Press.
