  • About Me

    I'm a writer and critic working on a book for Random House about the science and superstition of ancestry. My essay, "America's Ancestry Craze," is the cover story for the June 2014 issue of Harper's. My work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Bookforum, the Awl, Tin House, Narrative, the Los Angeles Times, NPR, Granta, the Paris Review Daily, Swink, the New York Times Book Review, B&N Review, The New Republic, and many other publications. I received the 2009 Narrative Prize for "When the Flock Changed," an excerpt from the novel I'm also writing.

    'lo, Maud. I know you're busy, but I love your writing, and I really hope you can find enough time to make more of it and post a little here someday.

    Corey Zeller – Nov 19, 2008

    Maud...I love that name.
