Hello, you.

I’m the Editorial Director for Audio at Slate.


cover of THE UNKNOWNS

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 admirable 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!
