I live in New York. I grew up in San Francisco and Bolinas.
I am a book critic at 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.
In my spare time I make art projects, play ping-pong,
frolic in the ocean, garden, and attempt to make crossword
puzzles. Here is one of them.
