About the Author
Nathan Holic lives and writes in Orlando, Florida, where he teaches writing courses at the University of Central Florida, and drives from 7-Eleven to 7-Eleven in search of the perfect fountain- poured Diet Coke. He is the author of the novel AMERICAN FRATERNITY MAN (Beating Windward Press, 2013) and the editor of the annual anthology 15 Views of Orlando (Burrow Press), a literary portrait of the city featuring short fiction from fifteen Orlando authors. He serves as the Graphic Narrative Editor at The Florida Review.

"A Florida magnum opus. Bright Lights, Medium-sized City is a masterpiece, a constellation, a novel in novellas, a graphic fictive memoir, a collection of parenting advice, and a catalog of real estate markets, all set to the song of neighborhoods and towns in and around The City Beautiful. The book is also, of course, a penetrating examination of humanity, love, and masculinity in a metropolis known by many for all the wrong reasons. Bright Lights transcends simple satire and structural experimentation. This book is a bold work of art, many years in the making and more than worthy of your time. Lucky for you, the book is also a lot of fun."
-DAVID JAMES POISSANT, author of The Heaven of Animals

"Every city should have its own novel, and finally Nathan Holic has crafted the volume that Orlando deserves. A story well told capturing the city in words."
-JAMES C. CLARK, author of Orlando, Florida: A Brief History

"Nathan Holic writes with the precision and confidence of a true badass. Hide your valuables and DIG IN."
-LINDSAY HUNTER, author of Eat Only When You're Hungry
