Gabe Hudson

Named by Granta as one of the twenty Best Young American Novelists and recipient of the Sue Kaufman Prize for his debut novel, Dear Mr. President, Gabe Hudson is here with his exuberant new novel, Gork, the Teenage Dragon (Knopf).

Gork, the Teenage Dragon combines so many things I count on in fiction I love—great expansive humor, a big-hearted optimism about all that’s possible in the world and in fiction, a very clear moral purpose and a sense of social responsibility—plus a willingness to experiment with the form of writing, to push the art of writing further, and with passion.” —Dave Eggers.

Gork, the Teenage Dragon is a hilarious ride through the mind-bending and capacious universe, a one-of-a-kind coming-of-age story for the big-hearted and beleaguered. Mostly, it’s a reminder that, now especially, we on planet Earth need a whole lot more dreamer-poets, a whole lot more gentle peace-loving fools.”  —Tracy K. Smith.
