I am the author of ten books, most recently The Lie About the Truck. My earlier books include Talk Dirty to Me and Advice for Future Corpses (and Those Who Love Them). I published a collection of essays, Violation, in 2015. My work has appeared in Harper’s, Antioch Review, Conjunctions, Threepenny Review, The New Yorker, and Tricycle, among other journals. I also teach at Dharma Rain Zen Center in Portland, Oregon.
