Author's Bio

I’m a writer. Books. Essays. Reviews. Fiction. Non-fiction. Poetry. I’ve been published in The New York Times, Boston Review, and Best American Poetry. I’m a recipient of a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Literature. My Twitter bio says I’m a cross between Anne Carson, Anne Lamott, and Amy Goodman.
