Gary Morgenstein’s novels and plays have been featured in national media from The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Parade Magazine, the New York Post, and Sports Illustrated to NPR. An award-winning playwright, Morgenstein’s numerous stage dramas also include the Perry Award-winning (for Best Original Play) poignant drama A Tomato Can’t Grow in the Bronx about a working-class Jewish family in the tumultuous 1960s, and the Broadway World award-winning (for Best Play) A Black and White Cookie, depicting the unlikely yet powerful friendship between an African American newsstand owner and an eccentric Communist Jew. His seven novels include the critically acclaimed dystopian political trilogy A Mound Over Hell (“1984 Meets Shoeless Joe”), A Fastball for Freedom (“a dystopian Field of Dreams”) and A Dugout to Peace, which will be published in December.
