What are you working on that you're really excited about?

I'm working on a book proposal called "Bad Lawyer." The goal is to unveil the sanctimony associated with the law through a combination of personal essays and broader critical analysis. It feels particularly relevant in light of the Kavanaugh scandal, which has revealed the shocking amount of reverence the average person has for the Supreme Court—essentially a reactionary conservative institution. ALSO, my Kendall Jenner fan account (@queerkenny) is an ongoing creative project and endless source of trivial pleasure.

Is there a live show or TV show or music album or movie or book you've recently especially enjoyed?

I devoured Ottessa Moshfegh's My Year of Rest and Relaxation. It's ruthless and hysterical and cathartic. I live for a scathing and misanthropic female protagonist. I'm also loving Sally Rooney's fiction, which is minimalist and Marxist and sexy! What else could you want from a book?

What's something you like or dislike about autumn?

The gut-wrenching nostalgia. Not sure if that's a like or a dislike....
