Open City was the subject of a long and extraordinary review in the New Yorker. There were also positive reviews in the New York Times, the Economist, Time Magazine, the New York Review of Books, and many others. There’s a dedicated website for the book here. A feature about Open City on National Public Radio. The page includes audio of an interview, a summary, a transcript, and an excerpt of the book.
Four of my favorite interviews are these two long ones in audio on Radio Open Source and CBC Radio, and these two in print: at Guernica and at 3AM Magazine. Other interviews are at Mint, PBS NewsHour, and Mother Jones. I’m particularly fond of this conversation with Aleksandar Hemon.
On Photography is my monthly column for the New York Times Magazine. I have written frequently for the New Yorker, the New York Times, the Atlantic, Granta, and the New Inquiry. There’s an in-depth look at my writing process at the Nieman Storyboard’s Annotation Tuesday.
I post my photographs, and think about images by others, on Instagram. I also have an active page on Facebook, which I primarily use to share the latest news about my work and upcoming appearances. I was active on Twitter, but not anymore. I’m on faculty at Bard College, where I serve as the Distinguished Writer in Residence. My courses in the past few years have been in writing, literature, and art history.
