The near future Near Future

FAMOUS MEN WHO NEVER LIVED, my debut novel, will be published next year. It’s literary sci-fi/alternate history that explores New York City, immigration issues, and how people deal with loss.  (I’ll tag this post with one of my favorite disorienting NYC pictures.)

I’m delighted to be working with Tin House Books to bring this book to readers!

 

Identity crisis

I got married so I changed my name! (Did you know this is a complicated and ridiculous process? It is!)

I don’t mean to confuse anybody. My parents gave me a perfectly good last name, and I’m still pretty fond of it. I published my first stories as K Brattin, and I won a fellowship as her.

But, personally and professionally, I’m stoked to be K Chess now.
