About the Author
Brian Doyle is the editor of Portland Magazine at the University of Portland, in Oregon. He is the author of many books of essays, “proems,” and fiction, among them Bin Laden’s Bald Spot (Red Hen Press, 2011). Among honors for his work are the Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts & Letters and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award.
“With headlong good humor, Brian Doyle—one of America's finest novelists and catchers of brief true stories—now sings short stories in which a cast of oddball searchers and appealing lost souls challenges tradition and skewers pomposity at every turn, from the concrete courts of pick-up basketball to within the Catholic Church that Doyle so clearly loves. And that's only what the book is about . . . Its overarching appeal rises from the richly imagined and beautifully scaped trail of words. Brian Doyle here is a big-hearted, sharp-eyed, penetrating storyteller at the very top of his game.”
—Robin Cody, winner of the Oregon Book Award for Voyage of a Summer Sun
