The secret lovechild of Garrison Keilor and David Sedaris, Kyle grew up on a farm in late-Edwardian Wisconsin, pithily noting the foibles of the various life-stages of corn. Abandoning his gingham and pitchfork, Kyle has taken to the fineries of Ivy culture; he's a member of Yale's three-time champion Varsity Haberdashers, and his collection of scrimshaw brandy-screws is really taking off. In his free time, he can be found catching up on DVR-ed cricket matches over a scotch and veal.
