I grew up in Bromley in south London, studied English at Pembroke College Cambridge and graduated in 2007 with a double first. After working on the Observer’s New Review section for a few years I moved to New York and now live in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I write about culture, especially books, film, music and gender, for the Guardian, the New Yorker, the New York Times, the TLS and others. My debut novel, Neon in Daylight, is forthcoming from Catapult. I also write the Stranger of the Week column at the Awl. I’m represented by Marya Spence at Janklow and Nesbitt.
