Since the age of twelve, Allan Lenzner has created fiction. He has filing cabinets with short stories, plays, abandoned novels and essays. This bounty of fiction has followed him wherever he has lived, from New York to California, Washington D.C. and Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya, Uruguay and Chile. He has always brought stories, a few sets of clothes, a notepad for ideas and a typewriter throughout the world. He has lived in Manhattan beside the Hudson River since 1972.
