I live in New York. I grew up in San Francisco and Bolinas.
I am a book critic for the New York Times.
I am also a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine,
and have written for places like The Believer and n+1. Previously
I was the literary critic for New York magazine.
I have a store with my partner Teddy.
I co-authored a book called D C-T! which came out in 2018
from Penguin Press. It is co-written with Joana Avillez.
I belong to the Newswomen's Club of New York.
In my spare time I make art projects, play ping-pong, and
attempt to make crossword puzzles for the New York Times.
Here is one of them.
