In addition to writing fiction, I've contributed art, design, and books coverage to a variety of publications. Here's a selection of some recent and favorite pieces.
Journalism, Essays and Reviews
Elle UK / Disappearing Friends / About friendship and all the infatuation, belonging, loss, and possibility that goes with it.
Tin House / Correspondent's Course: Fake Art / An essay about imaginary art in novels by Robert Stone, Dawn Powell, Dana Spiotta, Alan Warner, and Rachel Kushner.
Chicago Magazine / A Year of Grieving Publicly / When a young photographer's husband died suddenly at age 30, she didn't turn inward. She turned to Instagram.
Literary Hub / On Writing Fiction and Watching Soap Operas
If you ever loved General Hospital or One Life to Live or Days of Our Lives or All My Children or the Young and the Restless – or the stripped-down novels of Rachel Cusk – this one's for you.
Bustle / Four Great Female Friendships in Books and on Screen / In praise of Doll & Em, Zadie Smith's NW, Mina Tannenbaum, and Eleanor Bergstein's Advancing Paul Newman.
The Second Pass / Freeways, Taquitos, Stravinsky and Speed / An appreciation of Eve Babitz, author of Eve's Hollywood and Slow Days, Fast Company. (I wrote this before her wonderful books came back into print.)
