Anger, Romance and Comedy
The characters in Jon Canter, Lana Citron and Rudolph Delson's novels seem to be mostly bewildered at life, often angry. They meet romance by accident as they certainly can't believe in it being either misanthropic or disillusioned. The results are hilarious. They've been compared to Woody Allen, Nora Ephron and Tony Parson.
Jon Canter is the author of Seeds of Greatness and more recently A Short Gentleman and a scriptwriter for many of Britain’s most prominent comedians.
Lana Citron is the author of five novels: Sucker, Spilt Milk, Transit, The Honey Trap and The Brodsky Touch. Other works include: short stories, poetry, an award-winning short film, I was the Cigarette Girl, and the radio play, Love Saboteur. She has also dabbled in acting and stand-up comedy, appearing at the Edinburgh Festival in the 'Four Queens Poker Show' in 2004.
Except for a brief stint in Berlin, where Rudolph Delson earned money by selling subscriptions to his occasionally risqué personal letters, he has made a living, miscellaneously, as a paralegal, a law clerk, and a litigation associate. He quit his job at the law firm on the eve of his thirtieth birthday to write his first novel, Maynard and Jennica.
