About the Author
John Domini has won awards in all genres, publishing fiction in Paris Review, Ploughshares, and anthologies, and non-fiction in GQ, the New York Times, and elsewhere, including Italian journals. The New York Times has praised his work as "dreamlike, grabs hold of both reader and character," and Alan Cheuse, of NPR's "All Things Considered," described it as "witty and biting." Richard Ford called his 2007 novel, Earthquake I.D., "wonderful, a rich feast," and the Emerging Writers Network, in a four-and-a-half-star review, called that book and A Tomb on the Periphery, in 2008, "back-to-back stunners." Domini has worked as a visiting writer at many universities, including Harvard, Northwestern, and Grinnell. Italian publication for Earthquake I.D., is through the house that was the first to translate Don DeLillo, and they will also be handling A Tomb on the Periphery.
