Overview

Cris Mazza's work has often been regarded as "disturbing" for its exploration of sexual politics, victimhood, personal accountability, and acts of sexual violence. With an introduction by Gina Frangello and a foreword by Rick Moody, Charlatan charts the development of a dynamic body of fiction by a writer due for discovery by millennial readers unsatisfied by mainstream feminism.

Cris Mazza is the author of over seventeen books.

Rick Moody is the author of more than a dozen books and a Guggenheim Fellow.

Gina Frangello is the author of four books and an editor at The Coachella Review.
