Yuvi Zalkow writes and worries in Portland, Oregon. His stories have been published in Glimmer Train, Narrative Magazine, Carve Magazine, and others. His first neurotic novel is now available. He is working on a second novel, which takes place in rural Georgia in 1938 and somehow involves one Jew obsessed with napkins and another Jew in the Klan. He recently received an MFA from Antioch University, which makes him feel official. Yuvi lives with his fabulous wife, his sushi-loving stepson, a chocolate-sprinkle-obsessed toddler, and his new MacBook Air laptop. You can find him giving unhelpful writing tips on Twitter (@yuvizalkow). Check out his presentations on writing and other stats at his website.
