About the Author
Author of the critically acclaimed novel The Bookie’s Son (SixOneSeven Books, 2012), Andrew Goldstein is a former Breadloaf fellow and co-publisher of the small press Sixoneseven Books. For the past 34 years, Andrew has been a partner at the award-winning construction firm Thoughtforms. Earlier, Goldstein held a variety of day jobs compatible with writing, from assistant librarian and Zamboni driver to stock broker. After growing up in a world that no longer exists — the Bronx in the 1950s where his father cut ladies’ dresses in the garment center while moonlighting as a bookie and smuggler — Andrew now makes his home in Concord, MA.
