Yuriy Tarnawsky has authored some three dozen books of fiction, poetry, drama, essays, and translations in Ukrainian and English, most recently The Placebo Effect Trilogy—three volumes of interrelated mininovels—and MODUS TOLLENS—a volume of Heuristic poetry. His affinity for animals is well exemplified not only in CROCODILE SMILES but also in such books as the collection of stories SHORT TAILS, in the second volume of the Trilogy, THE FUTURE OF GIRAFFES, and most vividly in his best-known novel THREE BLONDES AND DEATH. He was born in Ukraine but was raised and educated in the West. An engineer and linguist by training, he has worked as computer scientist specializing in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing as well as professor of Ukrainian Literature and Culture.
