Everyone has a dragon to slay. What’s yours?

Summer, 2018 

Long Black Veil is now available in paperback!  And as an Audio book too!  You are invited to purchase this and other JFB titles at the Books page.

My column “Men and Women” appears on the opinion page of the New York Times every other Wednesday.

On the blog I’ve posted, in one place, links to the dozen or more podcasts and videos I recorded last spring.  They feature Faith Salie, Richard Russo, Susan Faludi, Anna Quindlen, Caitlyn Jenner, Miwa Messer, and more.

I’ve taken my leave of New York City until winter 2019, when I return to Barnard College and Columbia University for the semester.  Until then I’ll (mostly) be back in Maine working on a book, hanging with my family, and playing with our dogs.

In the meantime, enjoy these days.   Resist.  Persist. Prevail.  >&<
