culture. politics. everything in between. 
I am a 2013 Pulitzer Crisis Center Reporting fellow looking at Jerusalem, Eternal City, Divided City for which I've been writing for the New Yorker - see this piece on settler evictions in Sheikh Jarrah and this piece on building permits in Jerusalem - and for Newsweek - see this piece on Danny Seidemann, the map whisperer of Jerusalem.   And photos of the journey...As well as served as a pundit for New America and Pulitzer on the future of peace in Israel/Palestine. 

This  year I've been working on a book for Riverhead about the lover my grandfather left behind when he fled Vienna.  It's a story that began some years ago when I won the 2010 Peter R. Weitz Prize from the German Marshall Fund for Excellence in reporting on Europe. 
The prize was awarded to my Slate series about the Holocaust Archives in Bad Arolsen, Germany and the war time letters I found from my Grandfather- it's in five parts...
