His book White Girls was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2014 and winner of the 2014 Lambda Literary Award for nonfiction. Als has curated several exhibitions, including a recent solo show of Alice Neel and “God Made My Face: A Collective Portrait of James Baldwin” at David Zwirner Gallery. He is an associate professor of writing at Columbia University’s School of the Arts.
