Own Words

I am the author of Forgotten Country, forthcoming from Riverhead Books in 2012. I grew up in IL, NY, NJ, and MI. I was a math major at the University of Chicago, and then I worked a think tank and studied creative writing at Cornell University. I taught for a semester in Leipzig, Germany where my favorite thing to do was break into beautiful old abandoned buildings, and then I lived for several months on a cliff overlooking the sea in the South of France. Now I live in Brooklyn, where I'm a member of the birdsong collective, and on the advisory board of Paris Press.
