q-sharp whydunnit quoi?

This is q-sharp whydunnit, where I’ll be sharing the unedited thinking that eventually gets laundered into the essays and books I publish on unstacked platforms.

It’s not quite a draft, not quite a newsletter, but it is a riff on a favorite line from Muriel Spark? For now, I’m mostly writing about finance & literature, and the intersection between the two.

I’m a writer, critic, teacher, and the author of The Exhibition of Persephone Q (FSG, 2020) and the forthcoming novel The Visitors (And Other Stories, 2022).

At the moment I’m also a Fulbright Scholar in Berlin, where I’m working on a book with the Humboldt University Resource Economics Group and the Potsdam-Institut für Klimafolgenforschung.
