Background Information

I was driven to write my novel Warkin because there was honestly so little literary fiction out there I could stand to read. But the stuff I really like moved me so much that I felt I had to give something back.

Warkin is influenced by writers who produce simple, unadorned prose. The focus is more on describing action, thought, and dialogue, rather than physical description. Fiction is a poor substitute for photography, so the intent to "paint with words" is at a minimum.

Some of the authors who serve as inspiration (the short list):

Catherine Atkins
Neal Bailey
Charles Bukowski
Raymond Carver
Albert Camus
Dan Fante
John Fante
Rebecca Goldstein
Knut Hamsun
Charlie Huston
Stanislaw Lem
Bobbie Ann Mason
Christopher Null
G.W. "Bill" Reynolds
Henry Rollins
Jean-Paul Sartre
Lewis Shiner
Jim Thompson

Some (not all) of the styles represented above have been described as minimalism, Kmart realism, dark humor, and existentialism. Those terms could roughly apply to Warkin.
