Fiction. Nick Knittel enchants with stories as dark and moving as your favorite Bruce Springsteen song. Characters maneuver their way through not only a dead-end town, but a dead-end existence. Caught in complex relationships—friendships, marriages, and families—they chronicle what it's like to be blue-collar and barely making it.
Raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Knittel pursued undergraduate studies in communications at Ohio University. In 2011, he received his MFA in Creative Writing from Fairfield University. Knittel currently works as a medical editor in Madison, Wisconsin. His collection of short stories, Good Things, was selected by finalist judge Charles Simic as the Fairfield University's Fairfield MFA Book Prize winner for 2011.Author City: MADISON, WI USA
