Tobias Carroll

Tobias Carroll lives and writes in New York City, and has been covering a wide variety of subjects — including (but not limited to) books, soccer and drinks — for many years. His writing has been published by the likes of the Los Angeles Times, Pitchfork, Literary Hub, Vulture, Punch, the New York Times and Men's Journal.

At InsideHook, he has written about everything from Icelandic whiskey to soccer supporter culture to automotive design, as well as a monthly look at new and notable books. Carroll is equally at home writing a detailed account of the making of a documentary or unearthing an undertold story from a historical archive. Learning what the full story behind something is — and finding unexpected connections between different creative disciplines — are among his main areas of interest.

Carroll also writes a monthly column on literature in translation for Words Without Borders. He is the author of four books, most recently a novel, Ex-Members, and Political Sign, a work of nonfiction published as part of the Object Lessons series from Bloomsbury. If prompted, he can and will talk at length about his fondness for Tottenham Hotspur and the New York Red Bulls.
