About Brian Booker

Brian is a fiction writer and visual artist living in Brooklyn.  His assemblages are often situated in collaged wooden boxes, in which blocks of clear resin--containing preserved biological specimens, glass vials, antique texts, cloth, and other items--are mounted. These box constructions involve images and themes which also occur in his stories.  He is interested in the Wunderkammer or cabinet of curiosities as a genre with both plastic and literary possibilities.

Brian's short stories have appeared in AGNI Online, The Antioch Review, Conjunctions, The L Magazine, Literal Latté, New England Review, One Story, Oyster Boy Review, Post Road, Shenandoah, Tin House, and TriQuarterly.  His stories have twice been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, and his collection The Sleeping Sickness was a finalist in the 2005 Iowa Short Fiction Awards.  He has been awarded residencies at Blue Mountain Center in the Adirondacks and Hall Farm Center in Vermont.

He is currently a PhD candidate at New York University, working on a doctoral dissertation about David Foster Wallace.
