Writing

I worked for for Shelf Awareness for five years, 2014-2018, as a book reviewer and interviewer helping to cover the “25 best books of the week.”

Reviews included Marie NDiaye’s LaDivine, Louise Erdrich’s LaRose, Sydney Padua’s graphic novel The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage, Bill Hayes’ Insomniac City,  Zadie Smith’s Feel Free,  Bill Cunningham’s Fashion Climbing , David Quammen’s The Tangled Tree: A Radical New History of Life, Alfredo Corchado’s Homelands, and Nicole Chung’s All You Can Ever Know.

Interviews included Megan Hunter (The End We Start From)  Kate Moore (Radium Girls) Daniel Levitin (A Field Guide to Lies) and Ted Koppel (Lights Out).

My essay “Katydid” was published in The Sun magazine issue 439.

My story “The Artist’s Conk” was published in Eclectica Magazine.

My story “Slumming” was published in Bluestem.

I wrote up Ithaca for the Ploughshares “Literary Boroughs” series.

Although I am not at all a scholarly writer, I am co-author on the late Charlotte Jirousek‘s book, ​Ottoman Dress and Design in the West: A Visual History of Cultural Exchange.
