She is celebrated for her novels as well as her short stories, which have appeared in The New Yorker, Harpers, Granta, and other publications. Also an award-winning journalist, she has written frequently for the New York Times Magazine. She is a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Fiction, and a Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Fellowship at the New York Public Library.
