My memoir, The Looking Glass Brother, about the intersecting lives of myself, my father, and my homeless and schizophrenic stepbrother, “Little” Peter, was published by St. Martin’s Press in 2013 and by Picador Press in 2014. I’ve contributed short fiction, articles and essays to The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, The Huffington Post, The Common, Biographile, Serious Eats, Lapham’s Quarterly, Aeon Magazine, Art in America, Out and Outside, among others. I received a PEN Syndicated Fiction Award for my short story, The Vegetarian. After the Newtown tragedy, I delivered a radio essay about the mentally ill and gun control on WNYC Public Radio.
