His fiction and essays have appeared in Guernica, Narrative Magazine, Five Chapters, Salon, Harvard Review, and online at Tin House, the New York Observer, NPR, The Atlantic, and The Paris Review, among other places. He was born and raised in Brooklyn, educated at Harvard College, spent some summers playing baseball in Switzerland, among other places sometimes more exotic than the Parade Grounds, worked at Alfred A. Knopf and Vintage Books, and is now a columnist and editorial board member at amNewYork and Newsday, which means you can find him outside the subway or on Long Island.
