Christopher Sorrentino

Novelist, short story writer and teacher Christopher Sorrentino’s output seems sporadic, but I’d guess he’s a magazine rather than book lebgth dude with a finger in a number of pies.


  • Trance, a fictionalised account of Patty Hearst and the Symbionese Liberation Army after the death of the original head honcho. Sorrentino writes well, and based on this one I'd be inclined to try anything else he's written.

Investigate availability of:

Sound on Sound (1995)

American Tempura (2007) Novella, collaboration with artist Derek Boshier)
