Michael Hogan, a refugee from those big cities back east where, in his youth, he lawyered, partied, read everything, wrote novels and screenplays (one produced with Danny Aiello), painted portraits and all but wore himself out, now lives with his wife of ten years in Lakewood, Ohio, a quiet suburb west of Cleveland. He’s published two novels: Man Out Of Time (Random House) and Burial of the Dead (Thomas Dunne), an IndieNext selection. Both were critically acclaimed, described by Booklist as “witty and irreverent, Hogan’s offering makes you hope he has more stories to tell”, and by David Maine as “an impressively vicious, disorienting fever-dream that’ll keep you guessing–and most of the time your guesses will be wrong.” His two new novels, Dog Hills and Sistine, are available now from The Rogue Reader.

“There’s no excess in Michael Hogan’s writing, just muscle-and-bone prose revealing the frail and fragile in people as only the author can. Michael Hogan is a wonder, an example to his contemporaries.”
– Craig Clevenger, The Contortionist’s Handbook
“An impressively vicious, disorienting fever-dream that lurches from lyrical to visceral and back again. It’ll keep you guessing–and most of your guesses will be wrong.”
– David Maine, Monster 1959
“A very accomplished performance and a compelling mystery. Hogan is a masterful prose stylist with insight and depth of imagination.”
– James Howard Kunstler, World Made By Hand
