I write works of fiction and cultural theory. Sometimes I like to confuse people about which is which. ​​You can connect from this site to the websites of each of my novels. On those pages, you’ll find information about how and why I wrote those books, and also about some of the activities of my characters, both real and fictional. Here:

Who Is Mr. Waxman? *This is a free download of an audio novel - it was the first novel I wrote.
The Correspondence Artist *This one won a Lambda Literary Award.
I'm Trying to Reach You *This one was short-listed for The Believer Book Award.

The Gift (or, Techniques of the Body) *This one came out in 2017. The New York Times said, ""[The Gift] is a smart, funny, heartbreaking and often sexy delight of a novel that presses hard against the boundaries of where literary and artistic performances begin and end." It also won a Lambda Literary Award, and was shortlisted for the 2018 Clark Fiction Prize.

Caetano Veloso: A Foreign Sound *This one is in the 33 1/3 series from Bloomsbury. Also 2017.

Who the Hell is Imre Lodbrog? *This one was co-authored with Sebastien Regnier and came out in 2018. "It’s like being seated between the best dinner guests at a party of strangers." Seriously.

But while you’re here, you may also be interested in listening to my ukulele covers. I started making these as gifts for friends. It got a little out of control. Then I decided it was a conceptual art project. I started taking requests. I’m still taking requests. All of these covers were gifts. Go ahead, take some. Regift them. Request one. Remix one. Recover one. There’s a ton more if you click on the uke
