Montclair, New Jersey
Bio: I'm an avid reader who started the weekly "Dave Astor On Literature" blog in 2014. Since then, I've written thematic pieces on all kinds of fiction-related topics. Also, I'm the author of a 2017 book called "Fascinating Facts About Famous Fiction Authors and the Greatest Novels of All Time: The Book Lover’s Guide to Literary Trivia." And I'm the author of the 2012 memoir "Comic (and Column) Confessional," the writer of the award-winning weekly "Montclairvoyant" topical-humor column for Baristanet.com, and a National Society of Newspaper Columnists board member. But I'm not related to the rich Astors!
