J. Robert Lennon
John Robert Lennon is a prolific author of short stories and novels, six to date. Happyland was the first novel to be serialized by Harper's in
fifty years. His sixth and most recent, Castle, was released in April of 2009. In it, a man buys a large plot of wooded land in upstate New York only to find
that someone has built a castle in the middle of it. Further investigation leads to a journey into the past, and into the darkness of 21st century America.
Another of his well-known novels, Mailman (2003), portrays one man's descent into madness, and manages to be both profound and deeply amusing. His first
novel, The Light of Falling Stars (1997), won Barnes & Noble's 1997 Discover Great New Writers Award. His other works include The Funnies (1999), a
comedy about a would-be cartoonist; On the Night Plain (2001), a noir western set in the 1940s; and Pieces for the Left Hand: 100 Anecdotes (2005), a
collection of 100 very short stories.
He is also a musician and composer. As a solo artist, recording as Inverse Room, he has released three full-length CDs, Simulacrum (2002), Pieces for
the Left Hand (2005) (a companion to his book of the same title), and American Recluse (2007). He is also one half, along with musician Jim Spitznagel, of
The Bemus Point, which has released one CD, Infra Dig (2005).
