At 20 years old, Nicholas Kasunic is finding his voice as a writer. A native of Pittsburgh, PA, he attends the University of Pittsburgh. Still a ways from a degree, he does claim expertise in pain as a result of his medical condition of CRPS. In lieu of succumbing to a dark and empty life, he uses his personal agony as a catalyst for his writing. Full of insight into both the positive and negative aspects of struggle, his work covers a spectrum of emotional responses to life.
In his first novel, Losing Michael Malone, Kasunic studies the subtle emotions of pain and all its friends–depression, disease, passion, love, guilt, self-loathing, disappointment –while chronicling five characters in their desperate search for meaning. Hitting bookstores March 1, 2011.
