She’s a book critic for newspapers and magazines including The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, The Chicago Tribune, The Los Angeles Review of Books, and The recipient of fellowships at MacDowell and Yaddo and a member of the National Book Critics Circle, she lives in and loves a city (Los Angeles) she once swore she’d never even visit, where she’s always writing her next book and planning her next writers’ dinner party.
