Daniel Lev Shkolnik owns a Yale sweater he will never wear. He takes his Faulkner with vermouth and his vermouth with an orange wedge. In Istanbul, he learned to read the future in his coffee grinds. Despite the omens he repeatedly finds at the bottom of his morning joe, Daniel continues to write.
As a journalist, he's reported on Spain, Morocco, Turkey, and the U.S. His fiction and poetry has appeared virtually nowhere, and he has made peace with that. Once upon a time he was awarded a medal for writing from his high school. His mother is still proud.
"I was somewhat startled at the range of emotions I experienced reading his work. Honestly, one piece was so raw or painful that I could not finish it, and another took my breath away for its beauty. However you slice it - clearly Daniel has a gift!"
"His message is something that resonates with me personally. He is a brave speaker willing to get up and speak from the heart. A great example for how to go about doing the things that are hard for us. He has many, many more speeches ahead of him than behind him."
"This writing is a narcotic."
