Jonathan Papernick is the author of The Ascent of Eli Israel and Who by Fire, Who by Blood. His second collection of short stories There is No Other, from which the story "Skin for Skin" appears, is available in bookstores this fall. Author Dara Horn wrote about There is No Other, "Every single story here delivers a knock-out punch that will leave you reeling long after you've put it down -- and revising your thinking on what life and love really mean." Papernick teaches fiction writing at Emerson College and the BIMA program at Brandeis University. A new edition of The Ascent of Eli Israel with an introduction by Dara Horn will be published this May. An audio version of Who by Fire, Who by Blood will be released by Iambik Audio later this summer.
