Author Biography

Alexander Acimen and Emmett Rensin are students at the University of Chicago. Alexander has written for The New York Times and The New York Sun. He would like to be a writer, own a pair of John Lobb shoes, and live out his days reading and writing with his brothers in the Mediterranean basin. While Emmett's dream is to be a sea captain, he has settled on a mastery of card magic and shaggy-dog jokes, and on penning the Great American Novel. They are both nineteen years old.
