Jean Marc Ah-Sen is the author of Grand Menteur, In the Beggarly Style of Imitation, a finalist for the Toronto Book Awards, and one of the participants in the collaborative omnibus novel Disintegration in Four Parts. The National Post hailed his writing as “an inventive escape from the conventional.”

The Walrus magazine wrote that “at a time when writers – and writers of colour in particular – are described as being voices rather than having them, Ah-Sen offers a vision of the self that is compulsively creative and ecstatically pervious to the world.”

His writing has appeared in Hazlitt, The Literary Review of Canada, Maisonneuve, and elsewhere.

He lives in Toronto with his wife and two sons.

In his revealing “pseudo-biography,” KILWORTHY TANNER Ah-Sen unravels the tangled narrative of his separation from his mentor and romantic partner Kilworthy Tanner, a celebrated novelist. In the name of literary self-annihilation, the curtain is pulled on their degeneracy, prodigious drug use, and feuding with rival authors.
