Stefan O. Rak lives in New York City, because it makes sense.
In the 1940s, his grandparents fled Ukraine for NYC, otherwise he may have never been born. As a child, some neurologists suspected that he had hypergraphia, but it turned out that he had other issues. He graduated high school a criminal musician and later got a Masters in Cinema Studies from Tisch. He’s worked as an archival director, film professor, record producer, experimental music programmer, and bartender.
Stefan self-published his first novel, New Roses, which he finished in Salzburg, Austria, and at Monet’s house in Giverny. He now owns a bar in the East Village, a few blocks from where he resides, and is thirty-five years old at the time of this writing. He is thrilled that his second novel, Adventures of Bastard and M.E., will be published by Whisk(e)y Tit in February 2018.
