Hello, you.

I’m the editorial director at Freakonomics Radio.


My first novel, The Unknowns, is available in paperback from Little, Brown. The New York Times’s Janet Maslin called it a “sparkling debut” and a “remarkably funny, tender book.” Here’s a roundup of other press coverage etc. Buy it from Amazon, IndieBound, or Barnes & Noble.

I’m represented by the adroit Anna Stein at ICM Partners.

The restaurant review column I used to write for the San Francisco Bay Guardian is archived here.

Additional notes

I am not the Gabriel Roth who produces and plays bass on the Dap-Kings records. Nor am I the Gabe Roth who is the brother of torture-porn auteur Eli Roth, and with whom a surprising number of people seem to have gone to high school. Nor am I the Gabrielle Roth who inspired so many with her New Age dance recordings and teaching before her untimely death. Sorry!
