About Me

Leland studied Creative Writing and Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State University where he discovered the enormous possibilities of poetry, experimentation, and critical theory. He eventually earned an MFA in Writing from Columbia University on a merit fellowship. In a book review, Horror Talk magazine said, "Pitts-Gonzalez is a writer of the highest caliber and this book is a testament to that. The Blood Poetry is visceral, brutally honest, cerebral, entertaining, and somewhat uncomfortable to read . . . Likewise, some paragraphs screamed, asking to be taken out and plastered on gigantic billboards so everyone could enjoy their humor, brutality or blood-splattered philosophy." Leland has published fiction in Open City, Fence, Dark Sky Magazine, Drunken Boat, and Monkey Bicycle, among other literary journals. He is also the project director of an upcoming literary event series, Phantasmagoria: Language and Technology of Suffering, for which he received fiscal sponsorship from the New York Foundation for the Arts. About The Blood Poetry, Shelf Unbound magazine called it "A brilliant, brutal assault of a novel." And Grace Krilanovich, author of The Orange Eats Creeps, said it's "ragged, supercharged and wildly inappropriate. A Bataille sitcom full of meat and mommies." He lives in Brooklyn, NY.
