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.

Since 2019 I've had a books newsletter called Read Like the Wind.
You can sign up for it here.

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.
