Mark Chiusano

Author of The Fabulist: The Lying, Hustling, Grifting, Stealing, and Very American Legend of George Santos, an "essential read for those seeking to understand the complex tapestry of truth and fabrication that defines the American political landscape" (The Advocate).

And the story collection Marine Park, a 2015 PEN/Hemingway Award Honorable Mention and "cult classic" (Our Town); "One of the most subtle, tender, emotionally powerful books that I’ve read in a long time . . . A stunning debut” (Saïd Sayrafiezadeh).

Buy The Fabulist, the wild, page-turning, and frankly bizarre story of George Santos — who lied and fabricated his way into representing New York’s 3rd District in the U.S. House of Representatives, ushering in a brand new era of American shamelessness. Featuring made-up Wall Street gigs and a fictional volleyball career, embellished claims of Jewish heritage and a drag queen past in Brazil.
