Associate Professor of Creative Writing Daniel Torday's "Nate Gertzman Draws the Internet" made the list of Distinguished Stories in the 2017 edition of The Best American Short Stories. The piece appeared in the Spring 2016 issue of Tin House.
Torday is the author of the novel The Last Flight of Poxl West. New York Times chief critic Michiko Kakutani said the novel "announces Torday's emergence as a writer deserving of attention," and in a cover review, The New York Times Book Review called the book “Expertly crafted... full of lyrical prose, superb Rothian sentences that glide over the page as smoothly as a Spitfire across a cloudless sky… utterly accomplished."
