Charles Fischer

Charles Fischer is the author of The Eunuch—a darkly comic novel set in Babylon during the reign of Nebuchadnezzar II. Told from the point of view of Nergal, a eunuch slave-scribe who keeps the secrets of the king’s harem, the book is a tale of depravity and love in a time of imperial decline. Charles Fischer holds degrees from St. Olaf College, Harvard Divinity School, and the University of Washington. He lives in Seattle with his wife, Lisa, and teaches writing and humanities at Everett Community College in Washington. The Eunuch is his first novel.
