He grew up and lives in New York. www.teddywayne.com. He reads from his novel Kapitoil

“… [A] strong and heartfelt debut novel… Wayne zips through a minefield of potential clichés and comes out unscathed, striking a balance of humor and keen insight that propels the story through Karim’s education about the West’s ethics and its capitalism, while in the background the World Trade Center looms. It’s a slick first novel that beautifully captures a time that, in retrospect, seems tragically naïve.”
