Jim writes the kind of stories that sneak up on you. Unassuming at first, they don't fire out of the gate with a lot of fanfare and bluster. They are simple stories, elegantly told, that stay with you long after you've put them down. My personal favorite is "July 4: Easter", which deftly manages to weave together issues of love, relationship power dynamics, guilt, vindictiveness, tradition, and ceremony.

The Guest and Nose make me very happy, as do all of Jim's stories. His economy and never-absent wit make the arrival of one of his tales the cause of much celebration. I shall be lugging out the old boom box and popping in this cassingle to listen to the new ones all over again. That's how these e-reader things work, right?

Biography 


A native of northern Kentucky, I spent the 1990s in Memphis before moving to New York. I am the author of Why They Cried, an e-book collection of short stories out now from Joyland and ECW Press. The collection includes versions of five stories that were first distributed via Feedbooks--both stories from Single and three from Cassingle--plus five additional stories. My nonfiction and humor pieces, meanwhile, have appeared in Slate, Radar, Print, the New York Daily News, and the New York Post.
