Welcome to my little house on the Internet prairie.

Apologies for the long silence... apart from teaching, I've been on the road! I'm in the final stages of writing and reporting a book called NOMADLAND on itinerant Americans. (The book grew out of my earlier magazine story, "The End of Retirement: When You Can't Afford to Stop Working, which appeared on the cover of Harper's and won an Aronson Award. It was also a finalist for a Deadline Club Award.)
NOMADLAND will be published in Fall 2017 by W.W. Norton &. Co.
I am deeply grateful that I get to continue this kind of immersive storytelling.
The mothership -- aka Columbia Journalism School -- ran a Q&A about the project (along with my stumbles, en route and ongoing). Check it out here:
