About meAuthor of ZINSKY THE OBSCURE (Fomite Press, 2013), the Pushcart-nominated debut novel.Selected by Boston's NPR Station as one of its "Good Reads For The Summer."FEATURED IN THE BOSTON GLOBE'S "WORD ON THE STREET" COLUMN!“A powerful debut with Dickensian touches in its heartbreaking and occasionally humorous chronicle of the life of a modern young man.” – Kirkus Reviews“This wry debut novel takes on the classic coming-of-age saga, and it makes the reader rethink common assumptions about how young people get from here to there.” – Booklist“This eloquent novel from Mochari...is both bleak and affecting.” – Publishers Weekly“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....this book has the scope of something like Irving's The World According to Garp. It also has that book's heart. ” – DigBostonIlan Mochari’s short stories and poetry have appeared or are forthcoming in Keyhole, Hobart, Midway Journal and elsewhere. One short story was a finalist in a Glimmer Train competition. He is Senior Writer for Inc and a contributor to Cognoscenti, the online magazine for Boston's NPR news station.
