About

 

Michael Fertik is a published fiction and non-fiction author, poet, and produced film writer.  His work has won fiction and film prizes and festivals. Fertik's 2015 non-fiction book, The Reputation Economy, reached #7 on the New York Times Bestseller list.  Just about all the men in his family for four generations have been artists of one kind or another.  He’s hoping his sons (and if ever has any, his daughters) will have artistic interests, too.
