Erik Harper Klass has published stories and essays in Europe and North America. His work has appeared in a variety of journals, including New England Review, Yemassee, Summerset Review, Slippery Elm, and Open: Journal of Arts & Letters, and he has been nominated for multiple Pushcart Prizes. He writes in Los Angeles, CA. He currently has a novella forthcoming from Buttonhook Press.


Here are a few short samples of my work: 


"The Hills of Ojców When I Was Small" was published in Maryland Literary Review in summer 2019. On the eve of Vladimir Mayakovsky’s 1927 visit to Warsaw, a Polish poet lies in bed with his lover and contemplates revolution (always a kind of loss).

"Perfection" is a short (two-paragraph) work of experimental fiction. It was published in Cola Literary Review (previously Yemassee) in summer 2022. If you're looking for a plot, skip this one.

"This Is Not a Story" is not a story. Or is it???

"History and Class Consciousness in the Time of Coronavirus" was published in The Summerset Review in spring 2020. It's a love letter to my library.
