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 reporting a new book on American nomads, due out from Norton next year, which grew out of "The End of Retirement: When You Can't Afford to Stop Working." (That story was the August 2014 cover for Harper's magazine and just won an Aronson Award. It is also a finalist for a Deadline Club Award.)

 

I am deeply grateful that I get to continue this kind of immersive storytelling.

 

The mothership -- aka Columbia Journalism School -- just ran a Q&A about the project (along with my many stumbles, en route and ongoing). Check it out here:
