I study American and British novels from the middle of the nineteenth century across the entire twentieth and into the present. I also write about film. I received my PhD from Yale, and am at present Associate Editor at The Chronicle Review and a member of the Harvard Society of Fellows (JF ’14-’18). I am the author of Dandyism: Forming Fiction from Modernism to the Present (UVA Press, 2020), and am at work on a second book, Unseriousness Seriously Pursued: Irony and Camp Affect from James to von Trier. Articles from these projects have appeared in ELHGenre, Contemporary Literature, and elsewhere.

My reviews and occasional essays have appeared in the Times Literary SupplementPost45, Bookforum, Amerikastudien, The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Los Angeles Review of BooksBoston Review, Democracy, jacket2, and elsewhere. More at academia.edu.
