Anne Korkeakivi was born and raised in New York City but currently lives in Geneva, Switzerland, with her husband, who works at the United Nations, and two daughters. Her short stories have been published by The Yale Review, The Atlantic, and The Bellevue Literary Review, among other magazines, and she is a Hawthornden Fellow. She has also lived in France and Finland, as well as in a few additional corners in the U.S. She reads from her novel: An Unexpected Guest.
“An Unexpected Guest is a feast of a novel. “Korkeakivi creates a Paris as crisp and unruffled as her heroine—and just as likely to surprise.”
Michael Olson a Harvard graduate worked in investment banking and software engineering before earning a master’s degree from NYU’s Interactive Technology Program, where he designed a locomotion interface for virtual environments. Strange Flesh is his first novel.
“If the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was a titillating introduction to hacker noir, then Strange Flesh seduces us into a rocking threesome with it. Blending taut suspense with tech savvy and vigorous prose, Michael Olson shows us a world so salacious, the real on looks flaccid by comparison. This debut tour de force will leave mystery fans flushed, breathless, and begging for more. – Dustin Thomason
