He has published articles in Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, Tablet, and The New Yorker, and is a regular contributor to Public Radio International’s This American Life. He is the author of the short-story collection Beware of God and the acclaimed memoir Foreskin’s Lament. His novel Hope: A Tragedy was just released to rave reviews!
