Hello, you.

I’m a senior editor at Slate, and the editorial director of the Slate Plus program.


cover of THE UNKNOWNS

My first novel, The Unknowns, is out 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.

You can buy it from Amazon, IndieBound, or Barnes & Noble.


Some of the stuff I wrote in 2015 can be found here. Things I write for Slate can be found here. The restaurant review column I used to write for the San Francisco Bay Guardian is archived here.


I’m not teaching or doing any consultations right now, what with the new job and everything.
