About

I’m the author of The Exhibition of Persephone Q (a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice) and the forthcoming novel The Visitors.  

My fiction and criticism have been featured in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Foreign Policy, The Cut, The Paris Review, The Nation, Bookforum, 4Columns, and elsewhere. I’ve received fellowships from the German-American Fulbright Commission, Art OMI, and the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference. I also teach fiction as an adjunct at Columbia University. 

I’m currently a 2021-2022 Fulbright Scholar in Berlin, where I’m working on climate change narratives.
