I grew up in the Mid-West, arrived wide-eyed in New York after college and study in France, and have been a writer since my early days at The New Yorker, drawn particularly to the arts and urban culture, gradually working my way from journalism to longer narratives. In the process, I married, had three children and many dogs, moved out of the city and back to the city and from uptown to downtown.
