Joshua Cohen

Johanna Lawshea

Joshua Cohen has written novels (Witz), short fiction (Four New Messages), and nonfiction for the New York Times, London Review of Books, Bookforum, the Forward, and others. He is a critic for Harper’s Magazine. His latest novel, Book of Numbers (Random House), combines insider tech exposé, leaked memoir-in-progress, international thriller, family drama, sex comedy, and biblical allegory to render the full range of modern experience both online and off. Embodying the Internet in its language, it finds the humanity underlying the virtual.
