Welcome to my corner of the web. I'm a writer and journalist living in Beijing, where I'm correspondent for the Los Angeles Review of Books.
My articles have been published in The Economist, Dissent, Prospect, Foreign Policy and elsewhere. I also run a writers' colony, the Anthill.
My narrative profile of a young Tibetan featured in Chinese Characters, a book of reportage published by University of California Press in 2012.
I studied English literature at Oxford, where I edited The Isis magazine and hitchiked to Morocco.
I previously ran literary interviews at Five Books, where I have interviewed over sixty authors including Ian McEwan and Paul Theroux.
