Edward Chupack is an attorney for a Chicago based law firm and currently lives in the Chicago area.  He was published while in his teens, having contributed short stories and poetry to a number of literary magazines, and was the recipient of an award by the Illinois Arts Council for creative writing while in college.  His family sent him to the University of Chicago’s famous “Lab School” for a time, where his teacher wrote a direct note to his parents, telling them that Edward was destined to be a writer.   He has great nostalgia for his family’s first home in Chicago, which was purported to be the former home of a brothel owner, and where Edward spent many happy afternoons sleeping on the empty shelves of the long wooden bar in the basement.  Silver is his first novel.

The Parlor is a monthly reading series, hosted by Chicago’s Green Lantern and sponsored by Bad At Sports Podcast.
