I was born and raised in New York across the street from the city morgue and ten blocks south of the United Nations, but I grew up calling India home even though I've never actually lived there. I've lived in England and Western Massachusetts, neither of them home, and I now live in Pittsburgh, which sometimes feels like home. 

This search for home is reflected in my nonfiction and fiction, including my essay, “If You Are What You Eat, Then What Am I?” and my new collection, I Brake for Moose and Other Stories. I'm the nonfiction editor at the Kenyon Review, and I teach at the University of Pittsburgh, where I also direct the Writing Center.
