Why subscribe?

I’m Adin, a writer and teacher in Brooklyn, NY. I’m the author of Sprinting Through No Man’s Land (Little A, 2021) and These Bones Can Speak, which will be out in roughly 2025 if my deadline hold. Some of my shorter past work has appeared in outlets like New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, The Paris Review, and others.

In this newsletter, I’ll fill you in on the details that slip between the cracks of what makes it on the page. Sometimes that’s dispatches from research trips, other times archival rabbit holes I’ve found myself on the bottom of. I’m giving myself broad editorial leeway; I guess that’s the advantage of a one-man newsletter operation.
