Note: In August 2012, Yuvi’s book, now titled A Brilliant Novel in the Works, was released by MP Publishing. Here’s a more recent interview with Yuvi.
Yuvi Zalkow draws people into his story worlds with witty lines, pitch-perfect dialogue and well-chosen details about the missteps of a variety of winsomely obsessive characters. His smart, sincere brand of humor conveys heart and heartbreak. And he somehow gets away with breaking storytelling conventions with ease and playfulness–and without losing the reader. He’s the kind of writer who makes other writers shake their heads in wonder and ask, “How the heck did he pull that off?”
Yuvi’s story “God and Buses” was published in Glimmer Train, Spring 2011, Issue 78. His work has appeared in Narrative Magazine, Rosebud, Carve Magazine and the Clackamas Literary Review, among others. His story “Love” will be published in the LA Review later this year.
