My reviews, essays, and cultural reporting have been published in many magazines, including Harper’s, The New Yorker, Bookforum, T, and The New York Times Magazine, where I am a contributing writer. From 2014-2017 I wrote the "New Books" column for Harper's. My short stories have been published in The Paris Review, n+1, and Vice. I am also the author, with Mark Sussman, of a zine called ScarJo.
In 2014 I earned a PhD in English at Columbia University. I began the program as a student of post-war American literature and finished as a Victorianist. My dissertation, "Depressive Realism," was about Thackeray, Trollope, Hardy, and Charlotte Brontë. While in graduate school I helped to found the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research.
From 2005-2008 I was an editor at The Nation. In 2006-2007 I co-edited and published four issues of a literary magazine called The Crier.
I am a fellow at the New York Institute for the Humanities.
