Tom Gates: New Matador Editor
Tom Gates is one of the most talented writers I know. His style reminds me of David Sedaris and Bill Bryson - cynical, wry humor, flawless sense of pacing and that rare sort of self-deprecating honesty that makes narrative writing shine.
Tom is the newest member of the Matador editorial team. For a sample of his work, check out his hilarious rant about New York City or read any of the blogs on Tom's Matador profile.
