Top 10 Books of 2017

For over 17 years now, I’ve published an annual list of my favorite reads. The tradition continues with my Top 10 Books of 2017.

If you’ve been part of this tradition for awhile now, you know that the list begins with a wrap-up of our year. Feel free to skip by that little bit of history and head right to the list so you can start stocking your nightstand with new reads. As always, let me know what you’re reading so I can add to my own pile on the nightstand . . . and the coffee table . . . and the bathroom . . . and the office . . . and my backpack . . . and any other flat surface that looks sad and bookless.

Happy reading!

Welcome To My New Site

My old site was woefully outdated, so here’s a fresh start. Look for more updates soon.

My most recent good news is having “This is an Exercise in Detachment” selected by Roxanne Gay for The Masters Review’s Best Emerging Writers anthology. An alternate version of the story won the 2017 Bosque Fiction Prize. You can find the story here at Lithub.
