About Fredric Sinclair

Fredric Sinclair is an author of novels, plays, poetry and essays.

Fredric has completed two novels. His first novel, "The Inconsolable," tells the story of an average, young college student who turns into a troubled sociopath after a campus bombing kills his freshman year roommate.

"American Sampler," his second novel, takes a more satirical look at alienation through the mind of Joseph Ellis, a misanthropic, benign con artist who's compelled to overcome Internet addiction, a rare eating disorder and compulsive lying when he becomes enchanted by the girl down the hall.

Fredric's dramatic works include "Lethe," a full-length drama, which was produced as as staged reading by Playsmiths at the Richmond Shepard Theater in New York in October 2009. His full-length, multimedia play, "Aiken In Cyberspace," was produced as a staged reading by Orange Hanky Productions in New York in October 2008.

Currently, Fredric is working on a new full-length play, "Friend," which is in development.

He is a summa cum laude graduate of the University of Connecticut, where he earned a degree in English Literature.

Fredric currently resides in New York City.


Review by: Walter Esse on March 07, 2010 : (no rating)
You've probably never met anyone quite like Joe, the person who talks to you from the pages of this often hilarious, sometimes confounding, but always entertaining new work. There's a little bit of Joe in everyone and a lot of Joe in no one, with his bag of deceptions, fetishes, unusual psychological conditions, self doubt and painful honesty. I found this book a great read and a fresh look at the difficult transformation from adolescent to adult America today. Sample "American Sampler,"there's a promising new author behind this satirical magic.
