Mateo Askaripour, author of the debut novel Black Buck
Mateo Askaripour, author of the debut novel Black Buck, interviewed by Edward Schwarzschild, NYS Writers Institute fellow, and director of Creative Writing at UAlbany.
Mateo is the author of the debut novel Black Buck, a hilarious, razor-sharp skewering of America’s workforce; it is a propulsive, crackling debut that explores ambition and race, and makes way for a necessary new vision of the American dream.
“Askaripour closes the deal on the first page of this mesmerizing novel, executing a high wire act full of verve and dark, comic energy.”
—Colson Whitehead, author of The Nickel Boys
