J. Arthur Boyle lives in upstate New York and works for a sculptor who owes him money. Assorted work of his is (or will be) in Fence, Forever Mag, Le grand continent, Publishers Weekly, and decomP. He was outrageously well-behaved at Columbia University's MFA, which earned him several fellowships and a wife. And he would like someone to sell his novel (high risk / high reward).
