He is the author of twenty books of fiction including Mulligan Stew, Steelwork, and Aberration of Starlight. He taught at Sarah Lawrence, Columbia University, the University of Scranton, and the New School for Social Research. Among his students were acclaimed novelists like Jeffrey Eugenides and Nicole Krauss.

We'll celebrate his birthday with an open-mic reading of his works on Wednesday, April 27th at 7pm.

Columbia Global Reports is a new publishing imprint that’s producing four to six ambitious works of journalism and analysis a year, each on a different underreported story in the world. They commission authors to do original on-site reporting around the globe, and aim to combine the immediacy and narrative power of journalism with the intellectual ambition and acuity of scholarship. The books will be on a wide range of political, financial, scientific, and cultural topics—stories and ideas that matter.
