===Literary bio===
'''Mitchell Waldman''', born in 1957 in Chicago, Illinois, is a fiction writer who works generally in the realist tradition and tends to use dialogue to bring his characters to life. He is the author of the novel, A Face in the Moon (Writers Club Press, 2000), a belated coming-of-age story told from a male first person viewpoint. Waldman's novel has been described as "a Shakespearean-like tale with a twist," as "a story readers won't soon forget," and as "an emotionally deep story that takes the reader so deep inside a lonely, sad young man readers will hold their breath knowing that they cannot escape until the book is finished." The novel has further been described as showing Waldman's "great talent for developing characters who are people you feel you know, then placing them in life settings we can all understand and believe," , as demonstrating his "tremendous talent for genuine characters in real life settings," and as showing the author's application of "skill in his flowing narrative complete with a skillful portrayal of psychological grapplings."
