I am so bad at updating this page. I’m sorry. Self-promotion has never been my strong suit. But, let’s see.
I am still working on a new novel. It tries to reckon with how women narrate the sexists in their lives. I’m incredibly excited about this one. Not sure what this says, but I think it’s my best novel yet.
A piece about my asshole dog in Love Dog.
Another story in Harper’s!
I reviewed Susan Choi’s Trust Exercise for Book Forum.
I have another story in Harper’s. Rule.
I wrote a bit on Leni Zumas’s Red Clocks for Book Forum.
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!
