is the author of seven novels and six books of nonfiction. Hailed by The Guardian as "one of the most important chroniclers of the modern psyche," he is the author of the darkly satirical trilogy set in Southern California during the late 1990s:ResentmentDepraved Indifference and Three Month Fever: The Andrew Cunanan Story. His 2008 novel Shanghai Gesture was praised by Bookforum as "structured delirium . . . an aesthete's hallucinatory folktale." He is also the author of two collections of essays, Utopia's Debris and Let It Bleed. He'll be reading from his most recent book, Last Seen Entering the Biltmore (Semiotext(e), 2010) a collection of plays, poems, and short stories.

Arthur Nersesian is the author of ten novels, including The Sacrificial Circumcision of the Bronx, Swing Voter of Staten Island, Suicide Casanova, Manhattan Loverboy, Dogrun and the cult-classic The Fuck-Up (more than 100,000 copies sold). His latest novel is Mesopotamia (Akashic, 2010) of which the Village Voice wrote - "Nersesian easily captures the quirks of Tennessee, from sweet mom-and-pop storefronts to dingy, cluttered trailer parks; he sounds eager to stretch those regional muscles, after eight novels set in caustic New York . . . Mesopotamia is a solid, absurdist mystery. It's a vacation from the cosmopolitan, for both its heroine and its author--and, just like the tabloids it skewers, a sensationalist retreat for the reader.
