And the story collection Marine Park, a 2015 PEN/Hemingway Award Honorable Mention and "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.
