I am the editor of The Millions, where I have been writing reviews, essays, and the semi-regular Modern Library Revue since 2009. My writing has appeared at a variety of outlets including The Guardian, The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker Page-Turner, and Slate. My essay, "Beautiful Babies," was a Notable Essay in Best American Essays 2016. I live in San Francisco. I am on Twitter here, or you can reach me via email at lydia@themillions.com.
