Chris Biscuiti '01 published a poetry book Half a Lifetime More or Less (CreateSpace, 2009). Biscuiti says, "I am from the hybrid generation that turned dodgeball into basket-dodge, that embraced Nirvana and 90210, that worshipped our slacker Gen-X upperclassmen but avoided death and flannel. We were born in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and didn't really have a decade that defined us. We were in Kindergarten when the Challenger exploded, in college during Columbine, and just coming into our own as adults when Sept. 11 rocked us all. I still miss my friend Paul...This is my story, and probably pieces of yours."
