People underestimate the value of conditions in which politicians felt compelled to model civic virtue in public, even if they probably never really believed it privately. The decency to fake it operates as some constraint.

Dark at the Crossing is an outstanding, haunting book about Syria, loss & the messy ordinariness of civil war for those close to it. Can’t shake it off. Thank you

I’ve got a toddler and a 9 month old, so I read like 10 books a day, but they’re the same 10 books, and I’m getting sick of them...

Critics who use "MFA fiction" as a cudgel are so tiresome, sloppy and wrong. "...A nagging sense that there is something amiss in such established conventions of Iraq War literary prose, fine-tuned in MFA writing programs."

“Looking at my clips, I noticed something startling: in the more than two dozen reviews I’d written, I had never been asked to consider anything by a female writer. I don’t mean rarely asked; I don’t mean almost never asked; I mean never, ever asked.“
