Author of the Pushcart-nominated debut novel, Zinsky the Obscure (Fomite Press, 2013), which earned acclaim from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and Booklist. Boston’s NPR station named it one of 10 “Good Reads for the Summer.” Ilan’s short stories and poems have appeared in McSweeney’s, Hobart, and elsewhere.
“Brutally funny….forged from the same literary hearth that has given us such delightful and fussy oddballs as Ignatius J. Reilly, Don Quixote, and Kilgore Trout….[Zinsky the Obscure] has the scope of something like Irving’s ‘The World According to Garp.’ It also has that book’s heart.”
