Dean Bakopoulos was born in Dearborn Heights, Michigan on July 6, 1975 to a Ukrainian mother and a Greek father. A child of immigrants, he grew up speaking both Ukrainian and English, was shy to the point of psychosis, and avoided group gatherings and rarely left his mother's side.
Dean Bakopoulos recommends
The Anatomy of Dreams (2014)
"A vibrant, ambitious novel that wrestles with the big complexities of early adulthoodthe impossibility of fully knowing a partner, the quixotic desire for meaningful work, and the surprisingly sudden nature of obsession. Chloe Benjamin’s impressive debut shimmers and surprises with its wonderfully original fusion of compelling quirk and surreal mystery."
The Underworld (2017)
"Epic and intimate, this exquisitely sculpted novel is haunted by collective grief - not only the soul-damage it inflicts on a place but also the way it can lead us to unexpected redemption and new kinds of love."
