Her essays have appeared in the Oxford American, Slate, Creative Nonfiction, and The Iowa Review, among others, and in the anthologies Cat is Art Spelled Wrong and After Montaigne: Contemporary Essayists Cover the Essay. In 2015, she received the Whiting Award in Nonfiction. The esssays in Animals Strike Curious Poses investigate seventeen different animals made famous by humans.
