Jeffrey Wolf is a fiction writer from Chicago who works primarily in the short-story form. Frequent subjects in his work include place, family relationships, a sense of displacement, and (most importantly) memory. His writing often recreates the experience of memory through organic story structures, associational movement, compression, parataxis, and sensory images. In this way, his work attempts to make the mundane luminous and portray the everyday courage of persevering. Wolf holds a BA from Marquette University and an MFA from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. He is currently writing a book of interconnected short stories based on several generations of his paternal ancestors, Jewish immigrants who came to Chicago from Eastern Europe.
