Bart Schneider grew up in San Francisco. He recently returned to the Bay Area after spending 25 years in Minnesota, where he was the founding editor of Hungry Mind Review and Speakeasy magazine. He is the author of a poetry collection, Water for a Stranger, and five novels, Blue Bossa, Secret Love, Beautiful Inez, Man in the Blizzard, and Nameless Dame.
“Bart Schneider is a master of understated detail. His poems ring with wit and thoughtful reckoning, the sly shaping of indelible scenes. You want to go wherever they take you.”
