Chicago-born, Harvard-educated, George Rosen, now lives in Gloucester, Massachusetts. As a journalist, he has reported on West Africa and Mexico, writes frequently for the Boston Globe’s op-ed page, has done radio commentary for WBUR, and worked as a political speechwriter. Rosen’s novel, Black Money, was called by Publishers Weekly “a strong study of power that corrupts and idealism that persists,” and his short stories have appeared in Harper’s, the Yale Review, and the Harvard Review. He has received the Frank O’Connor Memorial Award and fellowships from the Artists Foundation and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

The Immanence of

God in the Tropics

Tales of soccer, death, hot water, lost love, and the presence of God in Africa, Mexico, and the coast of New England

“The stories in George Rosen’s collection take place in unlikely sites under unsure conditions; they treat with respect odd people — a man somewhere between a bum and a crazy, another who’s afraid of words, a reticent couple who practice reckless abandon. The unadorned sentences often reach a conclusion whose truth makes you catch your breath. This unpretentious book is the work of a master.”
–Edith Pearlman, Winner, 2011 National Book Critics Circle Award in Fiction
