United States: Fox’s Michael Friedman Publishes Collection Of Novels To Critical Acclaim
Last Updated: August 10 2015

Michael Friedman, partner with Fox Rothschild LLP, recently had a collection of novels, Martian Dawn and Other Novels, released. The book debuted to glowing praise from some of the publishing industry's leading critics.

Deemed by its publisher, Little A (the literary fiction imprint of Amazon Publishing), to be "an essential for the postmodern library," Friedman's book is a trio of short novels that tackles an array of topics, including stardom, science fiction, movies, love affairs, twins, French people, writing colonies, parenting, missionaries, murder and holograms.

Lorin Stein, Editor-in-Chiefof The Paris Review, named the book a staff pick. "Friedman's urbane silliness and élan hark back to the glittering twilight of high camp – without seeming to hark back . . . I didn't know anyone could still make it look so easy to have so much fun on the page."

"On every page there is something funny, sad, weird, or some combination thereof, conjured by Friedman's deadpan tone, pile-up of cliché and detail, and the placement of quotidian characters into absurd situations (or vice versa)," said The L Magazine's Phillip Pantuso.

"I love Friedman's books ...He is weird and virtuosic, and this union of traits is agonizingly rare," wrote the Literary Hub's Molly Young.

Friedman, a New York native who has lived in Denver for the past 20 years, represents clients in real estate matters in his legal practice at Fox Rothschild. He is also the author of two full-length poetry books, including Species, and four chapbooks. His first novel, Martian Dawn, was originally published in 2006 by Turtle Point Press. His work has been included in many journals and anthologies, including Great American Prose Poems. Previously, he was the chair of The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church and an adjunct faculty member of Naropa University's MFA writing program. He is the cofounder of the literary journal Shiny.
