McGrath has written for Pacific Standard, The Atlantic, Foreign Affairs, the Christian Science Monitor, Guernica, Roads & Kingdoms, The Morning News, and other fine publications. In 2014 he won the Felice Buckvar Prize for Nonfiction; in 2015 he won both the SER Narrative Nonfiction Prize and the BWR Nonfiction Prize; in 2017 he won the Disquiet Open Borders Book Prize. His writing has been translated into Chinese, Hungarian, Japanese, and occasionally makes its way into English, transcribed from highly suspect nooks and crannies in his cerebrum.
