3. It was during the Austin period (1975–80) that Michael recruited me, a restless over-age graduate student, to co-translate with him some curious, just-published essays by Bakhtin from the 1930s that went decidedly against the grain of the French theory then regnant in the literary academy. Among those thanked in the Acknowledgments of The Dialogic Imagination is Snugli Cottage Industries. For such were our sessions in the Chair's offi ce at UT: debating every word of Bakhtin's rambling, wide-ranging prose with newborn Nicholas, Michael's fourth son strapped to his chest in a Snugli front-pack, and fi rst with Katerina Clark.
