Alvin Orloff began writing in 1977 as a teenage lyricist for The Blowdryers, an early San Francisco punk band. He spent all of the 1980s and much of the 1990s dabbling in performance art, underground theater, night clubs, political activism, and cabaret, and zine writing before remembering that all he'd ever wanted to be was a novelist. His first work, I Married an Earthling, came out in 2000 and his second, Gutter Boys, in 2004. His latest novel, Why Aren't You Smiling? releases in fall 2011. His day job is managing Dog Eared Books, a literary hot-spot in the heart of San Francisco's über-trendy Mission District.
