Greg Gerke’s
fiction and non-fiction has appeared in Tin House, Paris Review Daily, Film Quarterly The Kenyon Review Online Denver Quarterly, Quarterly West, Mississippi Review The Millions and others. Greg has interviewed William H. Gass, Paula Fox, John Jeremiah Sullivan, and Lydia Davis.
“These swift, swervy, nervous fictions—as often as not about writers in antic crisis with the language, lovers in trouble with their loves— are heartachingly hilarious and stocked from margin to margin with agony-born brilliances fresh and revitalizing. Greg Gerke’s endearingly self-questioning narrators worry their doubts into a make-do grace that leaves a reder sweetened too.” Gary Lutz
