I wrote an essay about New York City and books and the Internet, specifically on the ways in which my “silly little Tumblr” helped me become part of a literary community that is thriving. 
It’s from Sari Botton’s wonderful anthology Never Can Say Goodbye: Writers on Their Unshakeable Love for New York, which is on sale today. The anthology also features Tumblr faves like Alex Chee, Jenna Wortham, Rachel Syme, Jason Diamond, Isaac Fitzgerald, and so many more!
Also, I’m just really in love with the illustration, which implies that I am someone who might own a super fancy sweat suit just for reading. 
Enjoy!

I definitely need to read this.
