There’s an excerpt from my forthcoming novel Overthrow in the Readings section of the August 2019 issue of Harper’s magazine. The physical magazine showed up in our mailbox this weekend, so it’s probably on newsstands by now, too. Check it out, and order the novel itself early and often! It comes out August 27, but you can already buy it from your local independent bookstore, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and Viking itself.
I reviewed James Polchin’s Indecent Advances, a history of antigay violence and the homosexual-panic defense, for the New Yorker website.
I wrote a review of Lucy Ives’s novel Loudermilk for the 9 June 2019 issue of the New York Times Book Review.
I reviewed Exhalation, a new collection of sci-fi short stories by Ted Chiang, for the 27 June 2019 issue of the New York Review of Books (subscription required).
I wrote a review of Hugh Ryan’s new history When Brooklyn Was Queer for the New York Times Book Review.
Update: The review appeared in the print edition on Sunday, 19 May 2019.
