I publish a wide variety of books on a wide variety of subjects. Everything interests me --- provided the writer makes their subject fascinating. My favorite books use narrative to explain how the world works, the hidden dynamics of things: history, politics, science, sports, economics, sociology, anthropology, epistemology, etc. Think of me for books on education, pop culture, natural history, long-form journalism, and music.

My list includes both literary fiction and nonfiction, though I tend to do more of the latter. I've also published illustrated books, memoir, biography, graphic novels and nonfiction comics, as well as literature in translation.

Here's a list of previously published and forthcoming books:
