He now lives in Asheville, North Carolina, with his daughter in an apartment across from the French Broad River.

Reviews

"Nathan Ballingrud is one of my favorite contemporary authors and any time he's got a new book out I run to the front of the line. His work is elegant and troublingly, wonderfully disturbing."---- Victor LaValle, award-winning author of THE CHANGELING
"Nathan Ballingrud's brilliant fiction brims with imagination, integrity (I do not use that term lightly), and an authentic world-weary dread that bores directly into your heart. With Wounds you'll gladly follow Nathan to Hell and (maybe) back."---- Paul Tremblay, award-winning author of THE CABIN AT THE END OF THE WORLD and A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS
STARRED REVIEW "[Ballingrud's] evocative and strangely beautiful descriptions of the grotesque and terrible are sure to linger long after they are read."---- Publishers Weekly
"Ballingrud has secured his place as a formidable voice and talent. A wonderfully disturbing delight."--Winnipeg Free Press
"Ballingrud writes darkness with such allure."--Aurealis
Best Horror Fiction of the Year selection--Washington Post
"Stretch[es] the boundaries of the genre by employing these grand, horrific worlds. "The Butcher's Table" reminds me of the first time I read Clive Barker's "In the Hills, the Cities." It's horrifying, but there's beauty."--The New York Times
"In only two slender collections, Nathan Ballingrud has emerged as one of the field's most accomplished short story writers."--The Washington Post
