Michael Kimball at Apostrophe Cast

I'm behind on this, but you can hear Michael Kimball reading from Dear Everybody in the latest installment of Apostrophe Cast. Of course, Dear Everybody is an amazing novel that I was fortunate enough to be able to read way before it was released here in the States. Here is my review of DE. And I had the pleasure of being able to interview Kimball and get to know him through emails. In October, I got to hear/see him read at Michigan State University when he came home in support of the novel (similar to the Apostrophe Cast reading, except it was about a 50 minute marathon read), and I had a great time hanging out with Michael and his family after the reading. The MSU reading is archived online as part of The Michigan Writers Series (my friend Jeff Vande Zande participated in the series in 2005).

A reading by Sam Lipsyte is up next at Apostrophe Cast on December 17.

I read an older short story of mine, "Work Release", for Apostrophe Cast in October.

I don't know why I'm such a narcissist and have to keep mentioning myself.

But, seriously, Michael Kimball rocks the house. Listen. Read.
