About the Author

Jarett Kobek is a Turkish-American writer living in California. His novella ATTA, a psychedelic biography of the 9/11 bomber Mohamed Atta, was an unexplained bestseller in parts of Canada. His first novel, I Hate the Internet, was a bestseller everywhere, doing especially well in Serbia. His second novel, The Future Won't Be Long, wasn't a bestseller anywhere, but was published in the United States by a company that printed propaganda for Nazi Germany. So there's always hope.

Reviews
