Nathan Rabin was born a bicentennial baby in Kansas City, Missouri. During a childhood that could easily be described as ?Dickensian,? he spent his formative years in Chicago and came of age in the Jewish Children's Bureau group home system. While still a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin, Rabin began writing regularly for a plucky local satirical publication called The Onion. Rabin quickly rose up the ranks of The Onion's entertainment section, The A.V. Club, to become its first, and to date, only, Head Writer. In 2004 and 2005 Rabin was a regular critic on AMC's Movie Club With John Ridley. With the A.V. Club, he co-wrote the interview collection Tenacity Of The Cockroach and is currently in the process of co-writing the A.V. Club's upcoming book, which will be published by Scribner. In 2007 he began the cultishly revered twice-weekly online column, ?My Year Of Flops,? a feature so popular he decided to continue it indefinitely, despite the project's title. He lives in Chicago with his two cats, Sweetie Pie and Maggie May.
