Gregory J. Wilkin
Gregory Wilkin graduated from Yale and earned a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto with a dissertation on the Templars and the Grail. Some of that research has appeared in English Studies, Spenser Studies, and a Liverpool festschrift called Court and Poet.
He has published fiction in The Northwest Review, The University of Toronto Review, Acta, Encounters, The University College Review, and nonfiction in the newspaper, The New Haven Advocate, The Hartford Advocate, and Tennis magazine.
Currently he teaches in the English department at Phillips Academy, Andover, having taught at Dulwich College, London, England, School Year Abroad in Rennes, France and Physics-Mathematics School 165 in Akademgorodok, Siberia.
A PTR-certified tennis professional, he has just completed a screenplay based on his novel The Rabbit’s Suffering Changes: Based on the True Story of Bunny Austin, the Last British Man—Until Murray—to Play in the Finals of Wimbledon. He sees Jude Law as Bunny Austin, Naomi Watts as his actress wife Phyll Konstam, Daniel Day Lewis as Fred Perry, and Meryl Streep as a woman known to the Austins as Fat Nanny. “Seriously,” he says. “I think she’d like the role.”
