I also review books for the New York Times Book Review:

My first cover story for the New York Times Magazine appeared in March 2012. I commented on the changing social makeup of London during its Olympic year. I’ve written many other articles for the Times, including a piece on a skyscraper escape device, an interview with a human shield in Iraq, and, going back to 2001, an interview with an ethical video game developer.

Five Dials

I’m an editor of Five Dials, a magazine published by Hamish Hamilton, an imprint of Penguin Books, currently released in PDF form.

Five Dials features new fiction, poetry, illustrations, reportage, long interviews, very short interviews, dispatches from London and abroad, ads, ads that don’t look like ads, and archival work culled from the Hamish Hamilton backlist and, sometimes, the deep Penguin archives.

Over the years, we’ve published writing from Ali Smith, Zadie Smith, Lydia Davis, Geoff Dyer, Don DeLillo, Harry Shearer, Paul Farley, Javier Marias, Deborah Levy, and Susan Sontag.

To break out of the solitary act of reading, we tend to launch our magazine at venues around the world. We bring out the Five Dials laptop and press send. We’ve held launches in Montreal, Brooklyn, Paris, Jaipur, Sydney, the Staten Island ferry, a room at a college in Oxford, a music hall in east London, and even beneath a blue spruce. A wonderful array of people have pressed send, from Chinese dissidents to pop stars to janitors who could have been pop stars.
