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 (freelance) about culture, especially books, music and gender, for the Guardian, Observer, Times, New York Times, TLS, Bookforum, Telegraph, frieze and others.
My debut novel, Neon in Daylight, is forthcoming from Catapult.
I also write the Stranger of the Week column at the Awl.
