I am so bad at updating this page. I’m sorry. I suck at self-promotion. I suck at information sharing, too. So, let’s see.
I’ll be doing some events once my new novel is out:
May 5: Reading at the Cabinet of Wonders, NYC
May 12: Reading at East City Bookshop, D.C.
May 17: Reading at Newtonville Books, Newtonville, Mass
May 22: Reading at Cornelia St. Cafe, NYC
I won a Guggenheim. Yay!
I wrote in praise of Steve Erickson’s Shadowbahn.
I wrote in praise of Karan Mahajan’s novel The Association of Small Bombs. And now it’s a finalist for the NBA. So *someone* has good taste…
I wrote a piece for Salon about complexity and art. I helped judge the PEN/Bingham award this year, which was an undertaking. But also pretty fun.
Woke Up Lonely was a finalist for the Believer Book Award, along with some other great books. Rebecca Lee’s collection took it, which I felt good about because those stories are fierce.
Woke Up Lonely recently came out in Israel with Keter Books. I’m especially psyched about that because I have so much family there. Aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins–you know.
I had four minutes of fun on This American Life. Adventure Stories! I sent four guys to a burning pit of hellfire in Turkmenistan.
I also wrote this piece about the music I listened to most while writing Woke Up Lonely, which you can check out here.
One time, I did this, which was embarrassing. Long Live Tony.
Otherwise, what else can I tell you? The Internet’s really big, go read something!
