Other Writing

My non-book writing is kind of all over the place, but if anyone is curious, there are lots of links below.

Here are a few of my book reviews, one for Trop Mag and two for the L.A. Times. I do Times reviews every few weeks.

On Bleeding Edge by Thomas Pynchon: http://tropmag.com/2013/the-man-is-far-from-dead-on-thomas-pynchons-bleeding-edge/

On The Fever by Megan Abbott: http://www.latimes.com/books/jacketcopy/la-ca-jc-megan-abbott-20140615-story.html

On The Girls from Corona del Mar by Rufi Thorpe: http://www.latimes.com/books/jacketcopy/la-ca-jc-rufi-thorpe-20140720-story.html

Here are a couple things I did for the Daily Dish section of the L.A. Times.

Best ice cream in L.A.: http://www.latimes.com/food/dailydish/la-dd-a-dozen-la-ice-cream-shops-20140722-story.html

Best Margherita pizza in L.A.: http://www.latimes.com/food/dailydish/la-dd-los-angeles-pizza-margherita-20140528-story.html

Here’s some humor stuff I wrote for Trop Magazine.

Beach Days: A Cost Benefit Analysis (for a Trop series with Underwater NY): http://tropmag.com/2014/beach-days-a-cost-benefit-analysis/

A fake Yelp review of Disneyland: http://tropmag.com/2013/honest-and-unbiased-disneyland/

Really, my largest body of work is my ridiculous overblown Yelp account. I’ve written over 2,000 reviews in the last 6 years, totaling hundreds of thousands of words, all for no money and at no one’s request. Here’s the account: http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=WWnhqRnWWjutMqh-2SzEuQ

Also, one time I wrote a short story about the rapture and it was published in the Los Angeles Review of Books print fiction issue. It’s called “Treasures in Heaven” and it barely exists since it isn’t on the internet. Here’s a picture of the issue, though, because why not, it’s pretty:
