Want help finding the perfect book?

I’ve worked in independent publishing and bookselling since 2010, first with Drawn & Quarterly in Montreal, then McNally Jackson in New York City, and now, Ooga Booga in Los Angeles. I’ve touched thousands of books over these years and spoken with near as many readers. While I love screens, I believe that nothing can replace the opacity of a page, and that for every anything, there’s a text that can help.

I’m available for in-person shopping trips in Los Angeles, phoners, and pen palling; ongoing subscriptions or one-off sessions. Rates negotiable—based on a sliding scale. Check out my defunct Read This Book column and my ongoing Hard to Read series for a sense of my taste.
