Larry Rothe is the author of short stories, essays, and articles. In his nonfiction he focuses on music, writing about it with the authority built over decades in the orchestra world. As a longtime writer for the San Francisco Symphony, he served as conduit between extraordinary artists and the public while communicating about the classical repertory in plain language. He now divides his time between reportage and fiction. He writes regularly for the San Francisco Opera Magazine and Cal Performances, and he has contributed to publications of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Carnegie Hall, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and San Francisco Symphony, and to the website The Decadent Review. His fiction has appeared in StoryQuarterly and The Blue Mountain Review. His books have won praise from the press and novelists. A Chicago native, he lives in Berkeley, California.
