Litquake is thrilled to welcome Lysley Tenorio to our Seismic Salon series! Of his recent novel The Son of Good Fortune (paperback due April 13), Refinery 29 writes: “Tenorio’s brilliant, witty novel about the love of a mother and son, the immigrant experience in America, and the surreality of our current reality, is bold, ambitious, and unforgettable.” He is also author of the story collection Monstress, which was named a book of the year by the San Francisco Chronicle and adapted for the stage by The American Conservatory Theater. He is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, a Whiting Award, a Stegner fellowship, the Edmund White Award, and the Rome Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, as well as residencies from the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, and the Bogliasco Foundation. His stories have appeared in The Atlantic, Zoetrope: All-Story, and Ploughshares. Born in the Philippines, he lives in San Francisco, and is a professor at Saint Mary’s.
