Booked - The Way We Sleep



Hey faithful readers, an essay I wrote on sleep, Catholicism, and death appears here with pieces by fellow Chicagoans Billy Lombardo and Jeffrey Brown plus fun others who you can discover on your own. 
As of now, they're shucking these glossy bad boys for $10 with free shipping. I might  rewrite/remix the heck out of this essay later and release 20 copies as a choose your own adventure zine, but hey, this is a cool book and Curbside Splendor is a grand supporter of Chicago writing. My friends Billy and Frank gave me some heavy editing advice and I'm finally starting to figure out this essay form.

Anyway, I ordered a copy few weeks ago. If you don't need to add another book to your life, I'll show you mine over coffee and you can humor me since this is my first book-thing I've been in.  
As to  the cover, if it were of me, the picture would display --  

  • a frail man child spooning a pillow 
  • drool all over the place 
  • and since I moved, no bed frame, floor mattress 
  • no facial hair and babe less.    
  • but isn't it a pleasing blue? Appearing below, a message from the publishers:
