I’m a novelist, short story writer, teacher, critic, and the author of The Exhibition of Persephone Q (a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice) and the forthcoming novel The Visitors.  

My work has been featured in The New York Times, Foreign Policy, New York Magazine, The Paris Review, The Nation, Harper’s Blog, Bookforum, 4Columns, BOMB, Tin House, The Los Angeles Review of Books, and elsewhere. I’ve received fellowships from the German-American Fulbright Commission, Art OMI, and the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference.

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