J. Edward Kruft received his MFA in fiction writing from Brooklyn College. His stories have appeared in several online and print journals, including Bartleby Snopes, Bop Dead City, Crack the Spine, and Johnny America. He once met Tony Bennett at a World Series game at Yankee Stadium. He seemed like a very nice man. Years later, he saw Bennett perform at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ, where he unknowingly had backstage passes awaiting him, thereby missing an opportunity to meet him a second time. Damn! Kruft lives in Astoria, NY and Asbury Park, NJ with his husband, Mike, and their Keeshond-mix rescue, Aine.
