Sam Pink’s Rontel, the first novel from innovative publisher Electric Literature, is a love letter to Chicago that's full of unrequited affection, brimming with contempt and admiration, gratitude and spite. Subversive and shamelessly honest, Rontel is Knut Hamsun's Hunger for the millennial generation, and deserves a place among the great works of loner fiction next to Céline, Fante, Camus, and Bukowski.

Joe Meno (Office Girl, Hairstyles of the Damned) says, “Funny as hell, searingly honest, and urgently real, Sam Pink’s Rontel puts to shame most modern fiction.” Vice Magazine calls Sam Pink "Moving without trying to be moving," and Tao Lin, author of Shoplifting from American Apparel, says, “This is the funniest book I have ever read.”

Sam Pink is the author of eight novels, including Person and No Hellos Diet. He lives in Chicago.
