My new novel, Descent, will be published by Algonquin Books in Fall 2014.  (To read excerpts, go to the Stories On-line page, or read the story "Up There" in Irish Girl.)

My collection of short stories, Irish Girl, won the 2009 Katherine Anne Porter Prize in Short Fiction, & was a finalist for the 2010 Paterson Fiction Prize. 

After naming it as one of his favorite books of 2009 (The New Yorker, The Book Bench, Dec. 11, 2009), David Sedaris chose Irish Girl as the book to recommend to his audiences on his 34-city, 2010 U.S. book tour.  (Watch the clip!)

My 2002 Young Adult novel, Never So Green (Farrar, Straus & Giroux), received a Starred review in Publisher's Weekly, plus other nice attentions, including a feature article in the Los Angeles Times.
