Jon Paul Fiorentino’s latest book, Stripmalling, released in April 2009, was hailed by Quill and Quire as “a hybrid book forged out of multiple angles and perspectives. It is also a funny and clever experiment in tale-telling.”

Jon Paul is the author of the poetry collections The Theory of the Loser Class and Hello Serotonin and the critically acclaimed comedy book, Asthmatica. He has been a finalist for the A.M. Klein Prize for poetry and the Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award.

Fiorentino lives in Montreal where he teaches writing at Concordia University and is the editor-in-chief of Matrix magazine.
