This is the biggest writing news I've had in a dozen years: last week I signed a two-book deal with Vintage/Knopf! My short story collection will be published in 2019 and my novel is forthcoming in 2020. I feel so lucky to have connected with my agent Meredith Kaffel Simonoff this summer, and I am thrilled to be working with editor Margaux Weisman.
Submissions are open for the 2017 Fiction Prize at Indiana Review! In this interview I talk about my story "Nothing Before Something," which was selected by Aimee Bender as the winner last year (also I talk about how weird it is to have a body, letting your narrators speak, and how falling in love fucks you up).
