MIKE ALBO is a writer and performer who lives and loves in Brooklyn. His second novel (written with his longtime friend Virginia Heffernan) is the cult humor classic The Underminer: The Best Friend Who Casually Destroys Your Life. His performances of the character can be found on YouTube, like everything else in the world. His first novel, the critically acclaimed Hornito, came out in 2000. Albo is also known as The Critical Shopper columnist for the New York Times. He has performed numerous solo shows, including Spray, Please Everything Burst, and My Price Point, as well as with the comedy trio Unitard. He is also a founding member of the legendary downtown NYC naked glittery dance troupe The Dazzle Dancers.
SUZANNE SNIDER’s writing appears in many issues of The Believer and as part of several artists’ catalogs—with the work of Danica Phelps, Clare Rojas, Aaron Wexler, and Eve Sussman. She podcasts for The Guardian, and has worked as an oral historian/interviewer for HBO Productions, the New York Academy of Medicine, Columbia University, and the Judd Foundation. She teaches in the Media/Film Department at the New School University and co-curates KGB’s Nonfiction Night. Her work has been supported through fellowships at Yaddo, the MacDowell Colony, and the UCross Foundation Center. She is currently completing a book about two rival communes on adjacent land.
