A Portrait of the Artist as a Middle-Aged Man*

In all likelihood, Cornelius Fitz will one day be described as ‘arousing paroxysms of ennui’ (Fox News), ‘beyond scum’ (Breitbart), and ‘laughable’ (Variety). Mercifully, that day is not yet here.

To paraphrase Dylan Thomas, he holds a beast, an angel and a madman inside him; yes, he is an author. He has been a contributor to the Times Literary Supplement, The Tangerine magazine, 3: AM magazine, Berfrois and STORGY, and had an essay – Profundity is a Slim Volume by an Obscure European Author – published at Minor Literature[s]. He was also the inaugural winner of the Verso Prize for work on speculative aesthetics, part of a Masters in Cultural and Critical Studies at Birkbeck, University of London.

His long-form writing often blends genre novels with novels of ideas. He is currently looking to place a trilogy of detective fiction – Dear Old Blood: Notes on a Wittgenstein Noir, Interiority: A Locked-Room Mystery and The Irregulars: An Ontographical Inquiry with a publisher.

His writing is often of a satirical and humorous bent and he returned to this in 2017, unleashing an ameliorative podcast of dark comedy for decadent times, The Latte Art Catastrophe.

He can be found on Twitter as @CorneliusFitz.
