Bill Gordon’s work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Mississippi Review, New York Press, Christopher Street, and Downtown . He received an MFA from Columbia University. Mary After All is his first novel. Luc Sante praises Mary After All as “sweet, funny, engrossing, and uncannily real, in the very best sense of that term. You feel like you could just move in for a while–Mary will feed you and put you up on the couch. You may not want to leave, though.” Bill grew up in Jersey City and now lives in New York.
