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

Spring, 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’m back at Barnard College of Columbia University in the City of New York now for the spring term.  Join me at the New School in New York for a discussion on April 19th with the five finalists of the New York City ONE BOOK project:  Jennifer Egan, Hari Kunzru, Imbolo Mbue, Esmeralda Santiago, and Barry Jenkins (who is making a film of the 5th book, James Baldwin’s If Beale Street Could Talk.)  Tickets available through the PEN World Voices Festival site. 

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