Meet the Author

Tim Hall began publishing his stories in 1995. From 1999-2004 he was a contributing writer for NY Press, and in 2005 started his own publishing company, Undie Press (undiepress.com).


He is the author of two novels (Half Empty and Full Of It), two collections of stories (Triumph of the Won't and One Damn Thing After Another) and a nonfiction essay about weaponized memes and word-contagion, How America Died.


His work is highly personal and journalistic, focusing mainly on the struggles and occasional madness of the artistic life and those who inhabit its lower regions. He does not shy away from the darker elements of life, and will describe graphic sex, drugs, or drinking with the same reportorial precision that he uses to examine his own missteps on the road to becoming a writer.


The prose is generally fast-paced, conversational, and marked by absurd or unexpected humor. The author has cited P.G. Wodehouse and Preston Sturges as major influences--but he still believes that, when it comes to sheer belly laughs, nobody can beat Kafka.


A native of New York City, Hall currently lives in a small town in northeastern Illinois--and yes, the winters are indeed cold there.
