A former columnist for the New York Times and McSweeney's and a frequent contributor to The New Yorker, he has taught at Columbia University and Washington University in St. Louis.


"Darkly comic and emotionally intelligent . . . Wayne looks at it all--masculinity, literary ambition, our decade of free trade and liberalism triumphant--and finds the rot underneath." --The Boston Globe on APARTMENT

"Wayne's attention to detail and language serves almost as a surgeon's scalpel, gently peeling back layered topics--friendship, class, sexuality--to reveal an engrossing survey of male insecurity and frailty . . . Carefully written and evocative with an airtight plot." --Salon on APARTMENT

"There's perhaps no living writer better at chronicling the most crucial emotional flash points of the young modern male than Teddy Wayne." --The A.V. Club

"A taut story that the author bravely sees through to its inevitable end." --The New Republic on APARTMENT
