Coming this fall -- "A Porch Sofa Almanac"

Due out this fall--"A Porch Sofa Almanac" from the U of M Press. An anthology of my pieces from MPR. It's a small book, but what the heck -- it came from a small mind.

The pieces are short. This may be the perfect book for the cabin or for top of the toilet tank. I like the "sell copy" the PR flack put on the back cover: "...Much loved--perhaps a little rough around the edges--and absolutely ready to be shared..."

A little rough around the edges, sure. It's the much loved part that made me do a spit-take.

They're starting to schedule readings and signings (Common Good Books in Saint Paul, 9/29, Magers and Quinn in Uptown Mpls 10/12, a grand tour out-state later in October). More info as things evolve.
