Press for The Unknowns


Here's a review from Janet Maslin in the New York Times, and a starred review from Publishers Weekly. Others: the Daily Beast, Bloomberg, Brooklyn Based; from the UK, the Daily Telegraph, the Independent, and the Daily Mail; and, from down under, the New Zealand Herald.


An interview with Kai Ryssdal for public radio's Marketplace. Another with Rhiannon Brown for Australian Broadcasting Company's Books and Arts Daily, and one with Sky Kirkham for 4ZZZ FM in Australia. The Dinner Party Download asked me to name four of my favorite debuts. [audio] Carolyn Kellogg recommended The Unknowns on Jesse Thorn's Bullseye. [audio] And I sat down for a free-flowing half-hour discussion with Dale Seaver on his Dale Radio podcast. [iTunes]


Here's a long and spoilery conversation with Wade Roush of Xconomy. I was driving to the airport while I spoke to San Francisco magazine but I feel like it came out pretty good anyway. I was sitting in a café while I spoke to the UK's Metro newspaper.


I made a book trailer with Ryan Junell.

Blog posts etc.

This post by Cody Walker from the Kenyon Review is easily the most flattering thing ever written about me. This long post about the book on the Daily Blague is spoily but very thoughtful. My friend Megan Abbott, author of Dare Me and The End of Everything, was kind enough to recommend The Unknowns to readers of Glamour; she and I conducted an email exchange for the web site of our British publisher.
