When I'm not on the blog, I'm scoping deals for a professional services company, hanging out with friends, or seeing some live theater.

I read Don’t Date Baptists earlier this summer and it made me laugh and cry. I know Terry Barr personally- he is a professor at my alma mater. As such I felt like it would be best that I not formally review the book. But I did really enjoy it, and I want to help […]

Meddling Kids

Edgar Cantero’s Meddling Kids was everything and nothing I expected. From the publisher’s summary: SUMMER 1977.
