Old-School Show-Offs is my column at the Awl exploring forgotten memoirs written by rakish individuals. Here’s the first installment, on the 17th-century “lieutenant nun” Catalina de Erauso. Here’s the second installment, on the father-avenging gunslinger Frank Eaton. Here’s the third installment, on a bold turn-of-the-century dame called the “greatest living woman thief” by the newspapers.
Damned Souls and How to Write About Them is my column for Medium’s new subscription-only vertical. Here’s the first installment, on religion + murder.
For Vice, I’ve written about crushed artistic dreams, people who call themselves “multiples,” Johnny Depp Impersonators, people who wish they were blind, and boring EDM festivals. I also wrote an article about a model who lost her leg to toxic shock syndrome that went viral.
