Andrew Winer
A graduate of UC Irvine's MFA Program in Fiction, Andrew Winer is the author of the national bestseller The Color Midnight Made and The Marriage Artist, published in November 2010. Formerly an artist who wrote art criticism, he teaches at the University of California, Riverside, where he has directed the MFA program in creative writing. He is recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Fiction, and married to the writer Charmaine Craig, with whom he has two daughters.

The Marriage Artist
Two mysterious deaths unlock one man's past and another’s future in this moving tale of art, love, and history. In this intricate and far-ranging novel, Andrew Winer writes brilliantly about debts that can and can't be paid, fatherhood in all its guises, the importance of bearing witness, the fragile border between mortality and immortality, the speakable and the unspeakable. The Marriage Artist weaves together the lives of characters, past and present, with consummate skill and the result is an utterly absorbing and profound novel.
