Why subscribe?

I’m an award-winning journalist, novelist, and essayist. This newsletter, built off the journalism and commentary in the publications I write for—the Nation, the Guardian, and New York Magazine, among others—will be a mix of reporting and analysis unlike any you’ll see elsewhere.

My debut novel Demolition Night was published in 2018. The Prince: Andrew Cuomo, Coronavirus, and the Fall of New York, was published in 2021. My second novel, The Night Burns Bright, was published in 2022.
