Author(s): Josh Greenberg
The author is a graduate of the Bill Manhire course. A Man Who Eats the Heart is the story of Nathan, an aimless twenty-something with a gift for burglary, and Jane, who is in flight from a childhood as one of the most-loved twins on television, and what happens when the invitation of a lifetime takes them from small-town America to fly-fishing in New Zealand with the legendary Barry Trasch. Outrageously funny, beautifully written and attentive to the mysteries of the heart. JOSH GREENBERG is 25. He came to New Zealand in 2003 to do the MA in Creative Writing at Victoria University, and won the Adam Award for this novel. He is now back in Michigan, where he works as a fishing guide.
