My good friend Tom Molanphy has a new book out! I’m delighted for Tom, who is one of the most hard-working writers I know (you know how we all say we’re going to send out twenty stories/poems/essays a month? Tom actually does). I’ve read one or two of the stories in the book, which is called Loud Memories of a Quiet Life. Great title, right? Great stories, too–about quietude and life as a male cheerleader. Readers, you should buy this book.
The publisher is a small SF- and NY-based press called Outpost19, which, I notice now, is also the publisher for my pal Charles McLeod. You can purchase Tom’s book on Amazon, through Outpost 19, and at Powells.com.
Read Tom’s story “The Line at Sister Mary’s Water Fountain” (under an older title) here. And watch a very cool trailer for his book:
Tom will be reading this Saturday afternoon, June 30, at 3:00 p.m. at Cafe Royale in San Francisco. Should be a great event!
