Jonathan Starke is a former bodybuilder and boxer who is often missing bygone eras of professional wrestling. His biggest passions are learning and travel, and he has ventured to over forty countries via hitching, couch surfing, and working exchanges. He is the founding editor of a literary magazine for the underdog called Palooka and works as a book editor and writing coach. His essays and stories have appeared in The Sun, Missouri Review, Threepenny Review, North American Review, Shenandoah, Brevity, Michigan Quarterly Review, River Teeth, Third Coast, Passages North, Fourth Genre, and Post Road, among others. You might find him watching old boxing matches on a Sunday evening. You might not.
