Erik Harper Klass has published stories and essays in a variety of journals, including New England Review, South Carolina Review, Yemassee (Cola Literary Review), Summerset Review, Slippery Elm, and Blood Orange Review, and he has been nominated for multiple Pushcart Prizes. His novella Polish Poets in Beds with Girls is now available from Buttonhook Press. He writes in Los Angeles, CA.


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.
