Hi, I’m Kyra (kee-rah). I’m a writer and a reader. Most recently, I wrote a book called The Misfit Economy. It chronicles stories of creativity from dark and informal markets around the globe. Together with my friend, Nico Luchsinger, I write Snail Mail, a slow monthly newsletter which only shares long-lasting, in-depth content. On my own, I write Marginalia, a monthly(ish) newsletter that focuses solely on sharing great book recommendations. Say hello!

Available in
all Good Bookstores

The Misfit Economy argues that lessons in creativity, innovation, salesmanship, and entrepreneurship can come from surprising places: pirates, bootleggers, counterfeiters, hustlers, and others working on the margins of business and society.

The Misfit Economy was named a top business book for 2015 by The Telegraph, included in a list of books “all leaders should read” at the World Economic Forum, featured in TIME Magazine, and called “lively and insightful” by The Economist.
