Dan Josefson is the author of the debut novel THAT’S NOT A FEELING, about Benjamin, who’s banished to a remote upstate New York reform school after two failed suicide attempts. There, he must navigate the delinquent-filled free-for-all that the school has become as a result of the unhinged headmaster, Aubrey’s, unorthodox philosophy.  David Foster Wallace called THAT’S NOT A FEELING a “bold, funny, mordant, and deeply intelligent debut.” THAT’S NOT A FEELING is a Barnes and Noble Discover Great New Writers pick as well as a Junior Library Guild notable book. Dan Josefson has received a Fulbright research grant and a Schaeffer award from the International Institute of Modern Letters. He has an MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and lives in Brooklyn.

Adam Wilson is the author of Flatscreen, out this past February from Harper Perennial, the story of Eli Schwartz, a loser par excellence—pasty, soft, and high— and his odd friendship with Seymour J. Kahn, former star of the small screen and current paraplegic sex addict. Adam has written for many publications including The Paris Review, The Literary Review, Washington Square Review, New York Tyrant, and The Coffin Factory, among many others. He holds a BA from Tufts University and an MFA from Columbia. He teaches creative writing at NYU and The Sackett Street Writer’s Workshop.
