About the Author

Dennis Mahoney lives in upstate New York. Fellow Mortals is his first novel.


"Mahoney weaves together the patterns of a community ('You're not alone, even when you are') and depicts the aftermath of a catastrophe with an unwavering eye. A strong debut reminiscent of the novels of Stewart O'Nan." --Publishers Weekly

"As one character in Fellow Mortals explains of another, 'He needs to feel alive, even if it hurts.' In this heartfelt debut, Dennis Mahoney shows great care and compassion for its people, all of whom are raw and vulnerable in the wake of a neighborhood tragedy." --STEWART O'NAN

"Dennis Mahoney mines the space between atonement and forgiveness in this unforgettable novel about a neighborhood cast adrift. Crisp and riveting, poignant and wise, Fellow Mortals crackles with humanity, with all its messy complexity. The characters of Arcadia Street will stay with me for a long time. Mahoney is an exciting new literary voice." --RAE MEADOWS, author of Mercy Train

"Dennis Mahoney writes with equal wisdom about the human inclination toward kindness and about the harm we cannot help inflicting along the way. In this fine novel of fellowship, nothing comes easily and no one--no one--is without grace." --LEAH HAGER COHEN, author of The Grief of Others and House Lights

"A cautionary tale about neighborhood life that's candid, elegant, and very sympathetic. I don't know if I should introduce myself to the family across the street, or buy new locks and a gun." --ROSECRANS BALDWIN, author of Paris, I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down and You Lost Me There

"Mahoney's characters, at once unique and utterly relatable, will stay with you forever. His is the kind of writing that makes me want to be a better writer." --ZOE FISHMAN, author of Saving Ruth and Balancing Acts
