Dr. Virago is the pseudonym of an academic who works at a regional public university in a medium sized town that she affectionately calls Rust Belt. Dr. Virago is a medievalist, a humanist, and a professor of literature. She lives with her spouse, whom she calls “Bullock” (after Seth Bullock on the TV show Deadwood), and a joyful English Setter named Audie. Virago and Bullock also remember and celebrate the life of their awesome American Brittany dog, Pippi, who passed away at the end of 2015. Dr. Virago used to run marathons but now she’s too old for that sh*t, so she runs half-marathons instead. She can be reached at drvirago2 [at] gmail [dot] com.

  1. Hell’o ;
    It was wonderful to find you and all the ‘history” about the Caro-Nan purse s. I have one that my dear Mother bought in Waynesville, North Carolina years ago. It is very special to me and I have wanted to know all about it for a long time. Thank you for your informative blog and my answers for the origin of my mother’s purse. Everywhere I go people stop me and ask about the purse. I would like to know if the ladies who created the purses are still alive? Thank you again for your very interesting blog you do. I will definitely be a ‘follower” from now on.
    Thank you again,


  2. Loved your article, especially the part about suntan oil and the smell of chlorine in the pool. I can close my eyes and I am “there”.
